In a 1930 building designed by architects Jean Ginsberg and François Heep, this apartment needed to be optimized. Reinterpreted by architect Baptiste Legué, the space now boasts a modernist cachet.


Restore the radiance of a 1930s apartment by bringing in light and circulation.

Line of conduct

Creating a soft, luminous atmosphere was the common thread running through this renovation. Inviting light into every room to highlight mineral materials such as terrazzo and waxed concrete.


The transformation of the apartment was radical: all partitions were removed, leaving only the structural elements in place. The floors underwent a complete overhaul to accommodate a mix of terrazzo and carpet. A set of furniture was carefully custom-designed and discreetly integrated into the existing environment. This approach re-established simple volumes and perfectly harmonized the apartment’s overall aesthetic.

A modernist setting that plays on contrasts.


Architecture of the 30s, this house has been, years after years, adapted to the tastes and use of its various owners.


Bring a new balance between the rooms, more contemporary with a real bias. Adapt the spaces to the new owners’ lifestyle by offering a certain fluidity in the circulation within the house.

Course of action

Definition of a strong color palette for the entire first floor. Renovation of the 3 floors in a graphic and warm spirit. Modification of the layout of the floors, without altering the original architecture of the house.


New custom woodwork was installed, allowing for plenty of storage space and a bench seat in the entrance area. The layout of the first floor was modified with a new opening between the dining room and the kitchen – with an IPN installation – offering a beautiful open and friendly space. On the first floor, the spaces have been decompartmentalized to create a beautiful master suite with double access to the bathroom and shower. A children’s bedroom with an adjoining office and bathroom provides a dedicated space for each member of the family. Finally, on the top floor, a dressing room, a guest room and an office have been installed.

A renovation with clean and graphic lines.
