Catalonia-based creative team 05AM Arquitectura is known for their innovative design and old-meets-new aesthetic, and this modern makeover inside a 19th century home is the perfect proof of their skills.
“Maison à Colombages” is the name of the inventive interior project, in which the firm put a contemporary spin on a classic structure. Located in the outskirts of Paris in La Varenne Saint Hilaire, Saint Maur des Fosses, the house appears entirely old-fashioned from the outside, however, inside, it is completely contemporary.
One of the main goals was to improve the layout and its functionality for modern times, so on the ground floor, walls were removed to open the main living area up to unite the living room, dining room, and kitchen.
They wanted the new renovation to respect the home’s history so many of the original details were kept intact, like the alcoves.
In the main bedroom, the bed is placed within an alcove creating a cozy place to sleep.
In the bathroom, the alcove is outfitted with marble to become the tub and shower area.
In the children’s bedrooms they used the same alcove idea as they did in the main bedroom by placing the beds in there making it a feature in each room.
