Once in a blue moon an apartment directly overlooking the prestigious Parc Monceau comes on the market! The Parc Monceau clients jumped on the occasion, even if they had to trade in their spacious Haussmannien apartment for a series of quirky spaces. Located on the upper floors of a wonderful “hotel particulier” overlooking the park, this project was a real puzzle! In the end we managed to structurally open it up so much that now the light even flows in the darkest corners of this home. None of the authentic architectural elements survived the previous renovations, but the uncovering of the beautiful “violin” structures of the windows was poetic enough to inspire us throughout this whole process.
The exterior of this residence is everything you could want in Paris architecture, and the interior is indeed quirky but the uniqueness and those photo-worthy windows really makes this apartment stand out. Designed by Hélène Van Marcke. Photos: Cafeïne.
