About Apartment XVII
Renaissance Revival: Crafting Intimacy for the Modern Scientist
Nestled in Lyon’s preserved Renaissance neighborhood, this apartment blends past and present. It caters to a young scientist’s solitary lifestyle.
Historic Elements Reimagined
We embraced the XVIth-century building’s charm. Stone fireplaces, oak beams, and 14-foot ceilings (4.3 meters) became renovation focal points.
Streamlined Layout with Character
The apartment boasts a bedroom, bathroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen. We celebrated every corner of this historic space.
Embracing Introspective Design
With a restrained color palette, we crafted an “introspective space.” It invites reflection and creative solitude.
Minimalism with Richness
Wood floors and rough plasterwork adorn the walls. These choices amplify the space’s full potential.
