An Eiffel glass roof and crisp white walls give this expansive Paris loft in the 17th arrondissement a gallery-like feel.
The Paris apartment occupies the top floor of the converted Patin coffee roasting factory near Parc Monceau inside a brick building dating from 1889. The historic complex underwent adaptive reuse in 1981, turning it into private residences, and it was granted Historic Monument status last year.
This particular loft spans three levels, with the entrance, two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first level. Meanwhile, the communal areas – lounge, dining room and kitchen – are set beneath the spectacular glass roof, which reaches six metres in height and drenches the entire floor in light.
Steel trusses are painted black to highlight the industrial bones of the building (which include arched bay side windows along the walls) and to contrast the all-white walls and glossy.
Stairs lead to the top floor, where a third bedroom is presently used as a home office. It, too, is crowned by a full-length skylight, offering incredible views of the sky overhead.
Architecture de Collection is listing the Paris property for €2.24m. Sadly the art and contemporary furniture are not included in the sale. Still, you can take a peek in the gallery above.
