In Paris, in the 20th arrondissement, the architects Mylène Vasse and Nastasia Potel have reinvented an apartment from the 1970s with fantasy.

Located on the top floor of a building dating from the 1970s, this 62 square meter apartment is a traversing plateau characterized by its context and its double view. Attentive to the potential of this small space, Mylène Vasse and Nastasia Potel valued its distribution, its light and its view of the city, creating transparency, reflections and perspectives.

The apartment is built around a large living room extended by a terrace, which also serves as an entrance, kitchen and dining room. This three-in-one room is organized along a north-south axis to highlight the distribution of the crossing apartment. The pale blue table surrounded by six delicate chairs and the extruded bench from the light pink floor produce a strong visual dynamic and shape the spirit of the place.

To access the two bedrooms and the bathroom, it is necessary to cross a dressing room installed in a space closed by a silver curtain with iridescent reflections, which dialogues with a partition dressed in pink or gray gold colored mirrors. The bathroom is covered in black and white speckled terrazzo from floor to ceiling, while the very minimalist rooms are immaculately white.

With this graphic case, the founders of the young Parisian agency Ubalt Architects reveal the outline of their architectural language.
