Philippe Demougeot

In the bathroom of this beautiful house in the east of France, the architect DPLG Philippe Demougeot has bet on contrasts for a reciprocal enhancement of styles and materials.

"As in a loft, I kept the envelope, with its old materials: stone walls with exposed rubble frames, brickwork, plaster and wooden beams on the ceiling." I did not touch the frame, even the doors came to rest on the original structures, I used the natural light diffused by the large windows, which overlook a magnificent park, to limit the artificial lighting ", says Philippe Demougeot who completely redeveloped the first floor of this big house. This level today has a suite, the room is separated from the bathroom by a landing acting as an entrance chamber.

The original fireplace, kept to accentuate the living room bathroom, was dressed in stainless steel and Corian® outside. For comfort, a large carpet of pure felt frames the bathtub (creation Philippe Demougeot for Créa Diffusion).

The rusticity of the beams contrasts with the modernity of Corian® equipment.

In order to recompose space while creating privacy, in the airlock, lacquered wood cladding panels hide the original partitions, leaving nothing to guess the function of the rooms. "I wanted to rediscover the spirit of hidden doorways castles, interpreted in a material today," says the architect. Inside, most of the elements that furnish this suite of 48 m², composed of three differentiated spaces, have been made to measure in Corian®: a large shower of more than 4 m², a mantel, a rectangular bath, two basins connected by a long plane ... The natural stone of origin combines with the synthetic stone, resulting from high technology. "For the floor, the owners wanted a coating of polished concrete, but I dissuaded them because it would not have offered an optimal result in this old house," says Philippe Demougeot. It is therefore an industrial type resin that has been chosen. Casting, it remains flexible and perfectly imitates concrete, without the disadvantages of this material that works and often cracks. The place is warmed by a long carpet of felt 2 cm thick, cozy out of the bath.

Storage side, an existing niche has been converted into a closet, closed by a sliding door that takes the industrial spirit of shed or barn closures. Suspended on its facade, a mirror brings a chic and elegant touch. Because here, we wanted to integrate modernity without upsetting the existing. Similarly, many tips have been implemented to hide the differences in levels and the lack of flatness of the supports and walls, related to the age of the building.

The Corian® shower enclosure (created by Philippe Demougeot for Créa Diffusion) draws a space of approximately 4 m2, largely glazed in order to capture a maximum of natural light.
