David Burles : Penthouse privé aux Monts du Lyonnais

The Monts du Lyonnais, David Burles makes the bathroom a private penthouse at the heart of verdurée plain. In continuation of the bedroom and dressing room, the interior designer imagines a timeless and warm place where wood and stone are mixed in a contemporary spirit. For this project, David Burles won the Trophy 3ème price Axor 2015 in the Residential category.

"The bathroom is primarily a technical space in which we should find some features shower, bath and body care. But that is not what must seem at first glance, quite the contrary, this technique should disappear in favor of the construction and materials of this space. the latter must in turn transmit heat information, harmony, well-being ... invite us to travel. That and both a very intimate place, and both the continuity of space night mixed with the water space. " David Burles


To overcome the narrowness of the surface, David Burles imagine a place bathed in light hidden behind a sliding door in polished glass. The bathroom opens onto a broader plan to double basin of the Axor Massaud with taps cascading call for calm and serenity.


The plan, the furniture and the floor in bleached natural oak are in continuity with the apartment. A large mirror goes through the wall and hidden storage space. The walls and walk-in shower are dressed with a very fine ceramic with a color and natural stone appearance echoes the Asian stone sculptures of the eighteenth century on display in the living room.
