If, in most projects, it is often the sub-slope which is exploited, in this one, the kitchen was installed in the center of the attic to benefit from the maximum height under ceiling. From one block, it includes all the equipment of a kitchen lambda. The wooden frame echoes the roof window under which the dining area has been installed. Well thought out, this space does not encroach on the kitchen, allowing a good circulation in the space. The table, thus suspended under the window, offers the view of the Parisian roofs ... A good idea to reproduce at home!

- A colorful living room under the eaves

The architecture of the attic of this Paris studio allowed interior designer Sara Camus Bouanha to house a comfortable living room, with the added bonus of a dining room and built-in storage. The basements being high enough, a bench and a sofa with file were installed. Arranged face to face, they frame the beams, left bare to retain their typical charm.
