A family of five has very specific requirements: wide, open rooms with storage space, clean fabrics and textures that can withstand continual movement, comfortable environments with few corners and nooks and a lot of light.
So, they let us know. We’ve worked for months on a highly detailed project, focused on fully optimising the daily life of them all, children and adults.
The kitchen is spacious, with a long work surface so that they can all cook together.
The library has floor cushions so they can enjoy reading anywhere they want.
The children’s rooms are customised to their personal tastes. Inspired by the Montessori methodology, they’re fully equipped and take us back to more traditional children’s games.
Each space in the house also has its own name, inspired by trips and places that mean something to all the members of the household.
The games area has ample storage space and the family can draw on the walls and tables.
The bathroom includes an extensive open space so that the whole family can use it at the same time.
The master bedroom contains a unique wardrobe that we managed to create thanks to a central partition that conceals it.
The terrace includes a swimming pool (60cm deep) for refreshing dips in the summer months. Everything is in its proper place: relaxation and entertainment areas, the barbeque, storage space, the dining room, the games zone… The family felt it was important to give the terrace a touch of landscaping, as it’s an interior patio, so we’ve surrounded it with aromatic plants. This creates a far more rustic, charming urban scene.
We created the concept of this space alongside the family, to enable us to totally adapt ourselves to their day to day life. This was a turnkey project, as part of which we worked on both the architectural project and the interior design and decoration.
