Chaptal Residence, a timeless renovation protects intimacy

The addition of new storage spaces in an apartment in Paris creates a buffer zone between the living room and the master bedroom, protecting its quietness from the life that animates the rest of the house. 

Located in the Parisian Nouvelle Athènes district of Paris, an apartment of 150 square meters has been renovated in continuity with the history of the building, built in the late nineteenth century. Away from ephemeral fashions, the interior design by Nathalie Eldan Architecture develops through attention to detail, in dialogue with the original finishes and favoring a sense of rarefaction that invests the choices of cladding and furnishings, including custom-designed ones.

Intended for a young couple, the apartment - divided into a large living room with an open kitchen, two bedrooms, a study, a laundry room and two bathrooms - has been redesigned in accordance with the needs expressed by the owners, who love to welcome their guests and host their family but at the same time want to protect their privacy and autonomy.

The insertion of new wardrobes and storage spaces, not present in the original plan, has created a buffer zone between the living and sleeping areas: the isolation of the master bedroom, in particular, has been safeguarded thanks to an equipped volume accessible from the corridor, while a walk-in closet has been created inside the bedroom. The finishings, then, fine-tune the register of the house, including the flush-wall doors, the mirrors surfaces that reflect the stuccoes on the ceiling, or the terrazzo floor in the bathroom that dialogues with the tiles in the shower area - a reference to the old parquet floor in the other rooms of the house - infusing the only note of frank contemporaneity in the apartment.
