Architect: B’bath, J.Sellgren Décoration
Typology: private residence
The top floor of an office building becomes a spacious loft dominating the rooftops of Paris. The project, masterplanned by owner and designer Johanna Sellgren, resulted in a substantial redefinition of the spaces. Some of the walls were demolished to create a huge living room with kitchen. The sleeping area includes two bedrooms with their own bathrooms. It is this latter part of the house to reveal the truly sensationnel spirit of the renovation.
In particular, in the master bedroom the bathroom in full view is elevated on a sort of Carrara marble clad dais, giving it a stage-like quality.
The centre of this island is inhabited by the Spoon bathtub, designed by Benedini Associati – here with Fez taps and Cooper, the stainless steel rail with sliding curtain that allows you to indulge discreetly in your own daily oasis of well-being. Completing the furniture is the Bjhon 2 basin with Fez taps.
With its less theatrical and more contemporary flavour, the second bathroom is a harmonious combination of colours and materials. Against a backdrop of entertainingly geometric tiles is the Vieques bathtub by Patricia Urquiola. Here in its two-tone version, its colours enjoy a perfect symmetry with the fixtures. From the same line is the column-mounted basin, again with Fez taps, in matt white.
The third bathroom features the Lito 1 washbasin, designed by Angelo Mangiarotti, made from a single block of Carrara marble and fitted with Fez taps.
