Located on the top floor of an industrial building from the early 20th century, at the very top of Montmartre hill in Paris, this apartment had a sprawling view over the city skyline with a powerful natural light. We found on site a glossy white ceramic tile floor, which, interacting with the sun, became the main vector of this project: like skating on ice, like pyramids in the white sand, every vertical intervention was considered as raising a monument from scratch, standing alone in this ocean of reflection. Wood, marble, steel and iconic self-standing accessories were used to rise contrasted materiality from this immaculate floor, creating an interior forest of tiny monuments, in dialogue with the spellbinding view outside. Living here is curated.
