Contemporary architecture, this incredible sculptural house of 293 m2 spanning 9 levels is the work of WRA - Wild Rabbits Architects. An innovative and daring project in the heart of the authentic Pernety district, in the 14th arrondissement of Paris.

Completely open to the outside by large bay windows on its entire facade, the house is characterized by the radicality of its design with a facade made of metal folds resuming the folds of an origami. This 18m steel mesh rib protecting the building offers a dual aesthetic function and protection of looks. Its vertical plan is articulated around a vertebral column: the elevator shaft and the oak staircase, supporting 8 platforms. An inverted arrangement, where the living rooms take place in the upper floors, where the light is the brightest. On the ground floor, the door opens onto a green garden of 15 m2 putting the street at a distance. A separate apartment of 48 m2 with fitted kitchen and separate bathroom occupies this level as well as the first floor. The elevator, opening onto a mural by street-artist ALFE, leads to the second floor where two cozy rooms are nestled, communicating by a discreet partition door. On this level, a design and immaculate bathroom offers a large hammam and a bathtub with a view of the sky. On the third floor, the current office is a large tray that can be transformed into one or two bedrooms, and whose custom-made library emphasizes the space. The master suite with its rosewood dressing room and its bathroom with double shower occupies the entire fourth floor. On the fifth floor, a living room with 5 meters high ceilings offers an inside / outside life thanks to its large bay window completely turned onto a 14 m2 terrace. Its custom-made sliding-panel bookcase elegantly hides a huge screen and leads to the reading corner where a wood-burning stove warms the space. Overlooking the room, the through kitchen on the sixth and last floor plays with contrasts with its black Corian worktop. Finally, a 15 m2 tree-lined rooftop whose exterior fittings have been created by Atelier Gabriel offers a unique view over the rooftops of Paris to Eiffel Tower. Finally in the basement, a wine cellar and a fully equipped gym complete the services of this incredible house, offering one or two parking spaces 200 meters away (extra).

'A minimalist architecture and a playground to invest freely.'



A small district of the 14th arrondissement nestled on the outskirts of the Montparnasse train station, Pernety has retained its intimate character.
