Paris. An aluminium island creates space in a loft by Sabo project

The loft is located in an industrial building dated 1920 within the XI Arrondissement in Paris. It has a raw chic hint and a wise use of space.

SABO PROJECT

New York studio Sabo project tranformed an industrial space dated 1920 in a raw chic loft in the heart of the XI arrondissement in Paris. The initial space of square proportions is stripped down to raw concrete. The sole addition of a central island is enough to define a variety of spaces, entrance, main living space, dressing, horizontal and vertical circulations, without the need for any wall or partition.

The rough ceiling runs continuously throughout the apartment while a looping circulation establishes a subtle gradation between the main space and the more private areas. The island cladding consists of 40 aluminum sheets that are custom punched, folded, anodised and mounted on a metal structure. The manipulation of perforated shutters provides the potential for many light and privacy scenarios.
