Les Enfants Rouges by Ubalt Architects

In a typical 17th-century flat of the Marais in Paris, architecture and interiors firm Ubalt have completed the project Les Enfants Rouges (a reference to the nearby historic market). The less than 400 sq ft space is designed to appear longer and more spacious, blocking a bath and kitchen at one end, and a bedroom opposite, with a space arranged as a dining area, lounge, and office in between. The careful use of space and line-based placement, as well as thoughtful, polished finishing, successfully combines functionality and modernity while preserving the historic character of the building.

Specialized design choices, such as accordion partitions that do not reach the ceiling, separate the spaces, maintaining a feeling of openness and allowing the original beamed ceiling to be continuously exposed. Storage, imperative in a small space like this, is situated on the traverse of the apartment’s length; the custom-made furniture pieces are space-specific, and lend aesthetic continuity to the apartment, as well as visual effect with their mirrored bases (topped in marble). An all-white paint job highlights the textures and material applications throughout, including the beams and flooring, and suspended, industrial-inspired lighting runs lengthwise, opposite the ceiling beams. 

Ubalt is a Parisian design agency founded in 2015 by National Institute of Architecture (Versailles) graduates Nastasia Potel and Mylène Vasse.
