Metek Architecture : Paris Doré

Based in Paris, the French agency Metek Architecture, reveals its latest renovation: the Paris Doré, a pied-à-terre of 35 square meters located in the XVe borough, where the furniture plays hide-and-seek with the inhabitant.

But where are the furniture? The agency Metek Architecture, composed of Sarah Bitter and Christophe Demantke, knows how difficult it is to link small space and multiple uses. This is why it strives to offer dynamic environments, as was the case for the 90 MK / 2011-AS project called "the house in the house", a renovation of 39 square meters, part of whose furniture is located in the partition separating the bedroom from the living room, containing double bed for guests, table, shelves, window and door allowing to open and close the block, according to the rhythm of life of the residents. Paris Doré takes up the same concept of fusion between equipment and wall.

In this Paris apartment of square plan and mono-oriented to the east, no partition. Indeed, the architects have decided to create a single space that can be subdivided by pieces of furniture that hide the night zone and its alcove by drowning it from the ground. The bathroom, consisting of a basin and a heated towel rail, is hidden behind two large gray waxed concrete doors. Each of these storage systems has a different type of opening - entrance side, to the west - and the kitchen arranged along the north wall behind micro-perforated brass cupboards.
These functional elements take the form of aerial "boxes", detached from the ceiling or from the ground. The bathroom, consisting of a basin and a heated towel rail, is hidden behind two large gray waxed concrete doors. Each of these storage systems has a clean opening type - folding, accordion, square or wall - designed to not clutter the space.

This place of life offers all the comfort of a large apartment, compartmentalized and concealed.
