BEFORE: The unique lounge supplied wonderful gentle and area to work with for the rework.

Once we first stepped inside the lounge at Fontaine de Mars, we may see the “good bones” as we prefer to name them. The balcony and enormous French doorways have been a right away plus and along with a big window on the alternative facet of the room the room was full of sunshine. A easy but elegant marble hearth anchored the room at one finish. We knew instantly that there was a strategy to remodel this area right into a handy and comfy open plan room, particularly if we made some adjustments to open up one facet of the area.

BEFORE: Home windows on each side of the lounge is a uncommon discover in historic Parisian buildings.

The condominium initially had an entryway while you walked in that led to the kitchen and the condominium’s solely rest room.

With three units of French doorways, the big and sunny lounge was ideally suited for including a kitchen alongside one wall.

Check out the doorway to the left of the fireside as it’s a key factor within the redesign of the bedrooms that we’ll return to later. However, first, let’s check out the unique kitchen.

BEFORE: The cherry purple cabinets needed to go!

Whereas the kitchen was actually extra up to date than many remodels we have managed, the lengthy slim area was fairly a stroll down and across the entrance hallway to the dwelling and eating space. Definitely not handy! We knew instantly that due to all of the plumbing on this space we may make the most of this area in a a lot better method by creating an extra rest room and helpful dwelling areas.

BEFORE: This area was reworked into an open-plan kitchen and eating space.

The principle change to the lounge earlier than including the kitchen was to open up a doorway on the left to create a brand new entrance to the bedrooms. Initially, each bedrooms have been accessed via the doorway you see on the appropriate above. The principle bed room, which had an en suite rest room, was accessed via this bed room from the lounge or via the en suite rest room from the lounge. So the en suite rest room door was eliminated, the kitchen added, and a brand new doorway to the bed room, creating a way more practical flooring plan.

AFTER: After all the balcony wanted a bistro desk!

Let’s simply get pleasure from a second to soak up the divine new open-plan eating space and kitchen. Think about relaxed meals at house inside or take one step as much as an enthralling bistro desk on the balcony. The area could not have come collectively extra superbly, with the elegant decor mixing completely with the Parisian rooftop view seen via the big French doorways in the lounge.

AFTER: Breakfast by yourself Parisian balcony.

That is Parisian dwelling at its finest – the fantastic thing about these quiet moments you may get pleasure from day-after-day.

The bedrooms at Fontaine de Mars required a great deal of creativity, however that is what we love about transforming residences in Paris. There are all the time options to replace areas and to make them extra practical and lovely. The ground plan for this condominium did begin with two bedrooms, one with an en suite rest room. Nevertheless, the bed room with en suite was accessed solely via the lavatory from the lounge or via the opposite bed room. Not handy in any respect! The en suite rest room additionally solely included a tub and sink – no rest room. Additionally not handy. There was work to be executed!

BEFORE: Loads of good options to work with on this bed room.

This lovely bed room area is situated off the lounge and has two French doorways opening to the wrap round balcony – one with lovely Eiffel Tower views! There have been loads of lovely options to work with right here.

BEFORE: The doorway (above left) to the lounge was closed to create a very completely different flooring plan.

A rest room this measurement—and not using a rest room—was merely a waste of area and wanted some critical work. Whereas the brand new entrance to the bed room decreased the scale of the lavatory, it was such an excellent sized room that there was nonetheless loads of area for a full rest room.

AFTER: The brand new entrance to the bed room is across the nook to the left.

The intelligent redesign maintained the privateness of the bed room from the lounge, whereas the redesign of the lavatory with an exquisite walk-in bathe and the addition of a rest room created a full en suite rest room for this bed room.

As with many Parisian residences in historic buildings, this property initially solely had one rest room, which was situated in a small half bathtub close to the kitchen. The one rest room with the lengthy bathtub that we noticed above was accessed immediately from one of many bedrooms and from the lounge. We reworked that rest room into a real en suite simply for the bed room and create a brand new second rest room the place the previous kitchen was situated.

BEFORE: There was quite a lot of work to be executed increasing the property’s solely rest room.

Keep in mind these cherry purple cupboards? That lengthy area was changed into an exquisite rest room with a tub, sink and room for a separate washer and dryer. By using the entryway area we opened up from the lounge there was even room to create not one however two half baths.

AFTER: One of many two new half baths on the left and the washer and dryer on the appropriate.

So from one half rest room and one shared rest room with solely a tub, this condominium now has two full bogs plus an extra half rest room. With 20+ years of expertise, we’ve got constructed an unimaginable workforce of gifted builders who see our imaginative and prescient and work exhausting to create impeccably designed areas which can be fashionable, comfy and very lovely.
