A great comfort for a small surface in Paris
The little is not the enemy of good, nor of well-being, still less of well-being. Marianne Evennou, who knows how to see big and orchestrate beautiful volumes, has made very small surfacesA real playground. Responding to a surge in prices in Paris as in most major cities, buying square meters becomes inaccessible. Let us add to this preamble, that property is no longer necessarily on the agenda, that the idea of building its heritage is no longer necessarily considered by investing in stone, that the time and the codes changethat travel, frugality, exchange, sharing ... are values that lead to other essentials.
Example applied with the den of a young woman who travels and works a lot. The desire was not to deploy his life, but rather to refocus on 11 m2 well thought out. "I wish you could imagine my hut." The story begins with the few words of a message that hold the decorator's attention. The idea makes its way, the young woman finds in a very old building in the Marais, at the top of a flight of stairs, under the roofs, enough to install his miniature project. She recontacts Marianne and gives him carte blanche for the fitness of this forgotten place.
