Studio Batiik’s vision for this 130 sqm duplex is chic and contemporary, materializing in a bright and minimal space, with tailored and handcrafted details, with a selection of natural materials, of works of art and designer furniture that can also be purchased. All inserted in the picturesque path of bistros, boutiques and galleries of the rue Vieille du Temple in the Marais.

«The architectural intervention is singular, almost sculptural. The work on the walls, floor and furnishings structures the rooms and deliberately leaves room for the works of art installed. A general feeling of beauty arises, of an intimate and stimulating space. We wanted to create a welcoming home but with elegant shapes and details », tell the architects Rebecca Benichou and Florence Jallet at the head of the French studio.

The apartment includes a large living room with kitchen on the ground floor e two bedrooms upstairs, each with its own bathroom. Characterized by exposed beams and parquet, the renovation project preserves theallure of an apartment in the Marais. On the ground floor, the floors were designed and made to measure by the Italian company Fornace Brioni. An imposing island in walnut wood finds space in the center of the kitchen and overlooks the living room, here a large white wall in canned plaster exhibits the works, alternating shelves made to measure in different marbles. In the sleeping area, the meticulous design is reserved for details, for the sculptural headboards made of corrugated walnut wood and concrete, while in the center of the room a circular shower in resin and concrete dominates the scene.

The bathrooms are basic but enhanced by the black and nude pink marblethe result is a bathroom elegant. The color palette of Ambroise it is discreet and essential, no bold hints but soft shades and earthy nuances. Intentionally white walls, to make room for the works, alternate with natural elements: wood, concrete and terracotta.

The art collections are on sale and in continuous rotation, as in a real gallery, Maison Ambroise changes its skin periodically and is renewed with new works for the next guests. Here iconic pieces of 20th century design coexist with the works of contemporary artists, commissioned specifically for the space. In addition, services tailored to the art are offered and on request it is possible to book a guide and build a personalized itinerary for the galleries and ateliers in Paris.
