In the Drouot district, a 60 m2 flat and 13 m2 terrace,
with haute couture renovation by design architects
Paris, PARIS paris 75009 FR


In the heart of Paris, in this historic Auction House and Art History district. Just a stone’s throw away from Hotel Drouot, the main French Auction House since its creation dating back to 19th century and major player in the French and international art market. Very close to the main Parisian boulevards, concert halls, including les Folies Bergères, Opéra Comique, Théatre de Variétés to name but a few and numerous art galleries and auctioneers. Public transport services are excellent. There are plenty of local convenience stores, cafés, bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood. And it is not far from the Opéra Garnier and the major department stores.


Located in a 19th century dressed stone building, the flat is accessed by means of a carriage door protected by a digicode. Once through the porch way, an interphone provides access to the upper floors. A staircase leads to this quiet first floor flat, located on the courtyard side of the building. It comprises a lounge with a fireplace, bedroom, bathroom, laundry room, fully fitted kitchen and plenty of storage space.
The lounge opens out on to a landscaped terrace. The renovation work carried out by design architects with both rigour and touches of fantasy is remarkable. Their creations and ingenious ideas to increase space abound. Good quality materials have been used and the decorative finishes are impeccable. The result nearing perfection. Everything is in excellent condition. Fittings are for the most bespoke prototypes. The main materials used are wood, glass and brushed aluminium.

The flat

The flat, whose floor plan is almost a 60 m2 square, has been entirely renovated, redesigned and re-thought with touches of fantasy and rigour by design architects creating a result close to perfection. The decorative finishes are meticulous. Absolutely everything has been made to measure. The lay out of the areas, and clever storage ideas are mainly prototypes. The walls have been recently repainted. The open perspective lines make the living areas seem bigger. Total harmony, with smooth movement between the different rooms that lead one into another.
The entrance door with adjacent cloakroom opens in to a fully-fitted open plan kitchen. The window fitted with interior shutters overlooks the courtyard. At the back, sliding doors open in to the bathroom, toilet and laundry. In front of the entrance another door opens into the lounge illuminated by two windows, one of which has been converted into French doors opening on to a landscaped terrace. On either side of the fireplace, cupboards hide ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ office space and book shelves. For extra comfort, there is a slight recess for ones feet while sitting down at the desk. There is a beautiful central rosette ceiling moulding. The two doors that separate the lounge from the bedroom, when open, form an alcove incorporating the bedhead. In the bedroom a huge cupboard is used as a wardrobe. It communicates with the bathroom. Further on, the laundry and boiler.
The floor is herringbone parquet flooring. Sockets and switches are the luxury Meljac brand. The windows are fitted with old-style espagnolette bolts and interior wooden shutters. All wiring, electric meters, water and gas pipes have been cleverly hidden. The cast iron radiators have been restored and are an anthracite grey colour. The main materials used throughout are wood, glass and brushed aluminium.

Our opinion

The flat is more like haute couture. Refined and elegant, it is harmonious and well thought-out for maximum comfort: everything seems to float. A place where aluminium, wood and glass blend beautifully together. The different living spaces are transcended as if by magic. It’s as if the design architects have managed to make all the spaces bigger. They have preserved the soul of this old building and combined its charm with modern comfort and design.
