Under the roofs of Montmartre, a 63 m2 flat with eleven windows finally reveals its full potential to become an open, raw yet intimate and warm living space.


To arrange each space in the flat in such a way that it can always benefit from the light coming in through the eleven windows. The challenge was also to make the corridors disappear.

Course of action

The choice of framing, transparency and perspective were essential to reveal each space. Finally, in keeping with the architecture of the place, the exposed beams and the volume of the main room were preserved.

Raw materials such as Vals stone, steel, stainless steel, glass, and a raw oak parquet floor have been used to magnify the project without ever stifling it.

Mise en oeuvre

Les meubles d’agencement, dessinés sur-mesure, viennent créer les espaces autour d’un mur porteur central : aucune cloison n’a été ajoutée dans l’appartement.

Chaque espace est pensé en lien avec le suivant par une série de meubles. Nous passons du salon à la chambre au travers d’une bibliothèque aux montants en acier et vitrée, vers la salle de bain, en traversant un des meubles.

Enfin, un soubassement ceinture la pièce principale  et permet de cacher subtilement le chauffage tout en créant une assise conviviale et en dissimulant du rangement.

L’ avant …


Located between Barbès and Flanders, the district of La Chapelle continues to live through its history.

Former village of the same name, this district was a place of passage for merchants, explaining the commercial soul that inhabits it today. Thus marked by its past, the district comes alive around the Saint-Denys Church, the Olive market and its small Square de la Madone.

There are also innovative places like the Halle Pujol. Designed as an ecological architecture, this former SNCF warehouse welcomes entrepreneurs and professional events within its surprising and fully modular building. A true example of modernity, this place breathes new life into the neighborhood.

Popular and lively.



Marked by its cosmopolitan atmosphere, the Marcadet I Barbès district rises between the Ramey village and the Chapelle district.

From Asia to the Middle East, via Eastern Europe and Africa, Marcadet I Barbès is steeped in a rich multicultural atmosphere that embodies the liveliness of the neighbourhood.

At the crossroads of Boulevard de la Chapelle and Magenta, you will find the Louxor, one of the most emblematic cinemas in the capital. Oriented towards an auteur cinema, you will marvel at its neo-Egyptian architecture. Inside, the building is adorned with a treasure trove of mosaics and frescoes representative of Egypt.
Another place of interest in the district, the Institute of Islamic Cultures is a centre for contemporary art and a place of learning about Arab culture. Throughout the year, you can attend its many events, exhibitions and conferences. Not to be missed : its remarkable architecture supported by the work of calligrapher Tarek Benaoum.

A cosmopolitan and dynamic district in full mutation where the good addresses multiply at high speed and of which a great part is classified zone Paris Respire, and thus closed to the vehicles on Saturday !



Famous throughout the world, the Abbesses district has kept its village soul, nestled between the Butte Montmartre and the north of Pigalle.

An unchanging setting and the nerve centre of the district, the Place des Abbesses delights lovers of a postcard Paris and bohemian chic life.  Facing its ancient carousel and Wallace fountain, the square is also home to the deepest metro station in Paris, known for its ornate mouth, an artwork by Hector Guimard. This Art Nouveau aedicule is one of the last three of its kind in Paris. It used to stand in front of the Hôtel de Ville and was only moved to the Abbesses station in 1974.

The Saint-Jean de Montmartre church, inaugurated in 1904 and classified as a historic monument in 1966, was the first to be built in reinforced concrete. Covered with red bricks and decorated with enamelled sandstone pastilles, it offers an original architecture mixing Byzantine and Art Nouveau styles.

Although the big fashion names have joined the district, you can still find old-fashioned shops, artists’ studios, cafés, restaurants, and small businesses in Abbesses, where both residents and visitors meet cheerfully. An authentic and lively atmosphere, unique.



This micro-district of the 18th located between the Montmartre hill and the most popular district of Clignancourt, it attracts more and more families and young couples looking for a pleasant living environment. Its shopping street with rue du Poteau comes alive every weekend and gives way to pedestrians.

The Jules Joffrin district hosts in its center the Town Hall of the 18th arrondissement which has the particularity of having a tasting cellar and a wine cellar in which the vines of Clos Montmartre are vinified.

Another curiosity, on the ground of Place Michel-Petrucciani, a piano in colored mosaics reminds us of the heart instrument of this composer and jazz artist. Finally, on rue Sainte Isaure, a small neighborhood theater as still exists in Paris: the Théâtre des Béliers Parisiens offers contemporary and offbeat plays as well as funny comedies and shows for children. A program that also tends to highlight the young artists of tomorrow. Do not miss the Square Maurice-Kriegel-Valrimont with its pretty kiosk, it is the children’s favorite playground at the end of the afternoon.

This still authentic district is becoming more and more trendy and popular. There is a village atmosphere, a haven of peace away from the hustle and bustle of the heart of the city.


Grandes Carrières

In the north of Paris, between the 17th arrondissement and the Butte Montmartre, the Grandes Carrières district takes its name from the quarries that have been openly exploited since the Middle Ages.

High quality plaster was extracted from the quarries, which was used for large-scale construction projects as well as for the design of works of art. The 11 hectares of the Montmartre cemetery are located on this huge site.

The neighbourhood is rather quiet and residential, with mixed architecture. There are buildings from the 1920s known as HBM, recognisable by their different shades of brick, as well as very beautiful and imposing Haussmannian buildings and artists’ lofts. For the more privileged, a few confidential cul-de-sacs, such as the cité Pilleux, hide charming little houses.

At number 189 rue Ordener, the monumental “Montmartre aux artistes” housing estate is worth a visit. Designed in the 1930s by the architects Adolphe Thiers and Henry Résal, it is made up of 177 studios and still hosts artists and exhibitions.


A rather residential and quiet district of the 18th arrondissement, Lamarck Caulaincourt is the choice of another Montmartre, lively and family-friendly, far from the tourist bustle.

The district benefits from the very commercial rue Damrémont, very lively on weekends with families coming to do their weekly shopping. At number 43 of this street, a small treasure well known to the inhabitants of the district. In the corridor formerly serving the Bains Damrémont, the architect of the time had placed earthenware paintings presenting children’s games on the Montmartre hill. Dating from 1910, they are now listed as historical monuments.

Crossed by many stairs leading up to the Butte, this district also includes the very chic avenue Junot where artists come to take refuge in magnificent townhouses or loft-style apartments. Nearby, we will of course also note the Villa Leandre, a charming little cul-de-sac lined with charming little houses in this Haussmann landscape.
