The project, designed by Andrea Marcante (founder of UdA architetti) and Adelaide Testa, involves the restructuring of a 180 m² apartment in Paris for Isis Colombe Combréas, the managing director and editor-in-chief of the magazines MilK and MilK decoration, her husband the photographer Karel Balas, and two children Hiroko and Aliocha. The apartment is located in a 1930s property in the northern XIV arrondissement bordering on Saint Germain.

 

Before the restructuring project, the apartment contained a number of important pieces from the history of design and was still divided up as it was when the property was first built. The client’s specifications were clear and precise: the apartment needed re-functionalising, while minimising the number of walling structures, completing the work as quickly as possible (maximum of three months, so that the family would not be inconvenienced too long by moving to a different home) and rethinking the communal areas, such as the kitchen and study, and also the more intimate bedrooms/bathrooms, so that every member of the household could have their own separate premises.
