Apartment. Saturday , September 30th , 2017 - 16:00:14 PM
Just steps from the Prado beaches of Marseille in France, Architect Maurice Padovani created a livable and stylish home for a young family. The renovated space is light, airy and comfortable, with plenty of high-design touches. The home was actually a small unit next to a stable that the family had refashioned in three phases.
Next to the living space is the kitchen area, which is freestanding without dividing walls. The open plan includes a unit that houses the refrigerator and some storage, but otherwise the upper sight line is unfettered by cabinetry. Another unifying factor throughout the apartment are the “Lighting Carpets” that each contain three different types of lighting. Much as carpets on the floor define a space, these light fixtures do the same from an overhead vantage point. The fixtures include integrated LED lighting strips and units that cast light downward, allowing for total control over the amount and quality of light in a particular area.
The limited floor space was an impediment but also the thing that empowered the designers to find custom solutions and to come up with new and clever design ideas. For instance, they chose a wall bed instead of a typical one and this allowed them to fulfill their plan of giving the attic a versatile and flexible floor plan. As the bed folds up during the day, the space can become a lounge area or an extension of the living area.
