Remodeling an old home into a modern delight that meets the needs of its contemporary owners is a hard task in itself. But this becomes even more challenging when you have to incorporate space-savvy features and smart storage options that make the most of every inch on offer.
But this three-story residence on the outskirts of Paris is even more unique and ingenious thanks to architect Andrea Mosca’s use of stepped beech wood shelves that become the focal point of a rejuvenated interior. Renovated and transformed from a dark and inconvenient home into a bright and light-filled modern hub the maximizes space while ensuring that the home takes on a sophisticated vibe.
A new basement level was added and the existing roof was extended creating two additional levels in the limited space available. The light-filled basement that extends into the private rear yard contains the new open plan living area along with the kitchen and dining room.
Large floor-to-ceiling shelves and open storage units in the living area create a wonderful display that holds books even as a stylish pendant light above the dining table brings cheer and contrast to the setting. An L-shaped custom vanity steals the show in the bathroom and the corner bathtub doubles as a cozy space-savvy feature.
The open living area also contains the kitchen and the dining room. Three of the four old bedrooms were transformed into serene contemporary bedrooms and a guest room while the additional room was turned into a home office.
A blue and white color scheme mirrored walls and contemporary style completely alter the home that now welcomes you gleefully! A sensational bathroom in red with a polished floor and textured walls completes this exquisite Italian residence. There is always something exceptionally charming about gorgeous Parisian homes that bring along with them the iconic aura of the city itself!
It is the many shades of gray that hold sway in every room of this house with the relaxing living area charming you with textural contrast hints of bright colors and a posh ambiance. A two-sided fireplace delineates this open living zone from the dining area while the state-of-the-art contemporary kitchen maximizes both storage and counter space.
