Lofty beams and rugged original features run through this former workshop in Paris’ 20th arrondissement.
The apartment sits between Bagnolet and Montreuil, in what was once the city’s industrial heartland. Originally a carpenter’s atelier, it has been converted into a four-bedroom home, on the market via Espaces Atypiques for €1.47m.
Trussed beams cross the partially glazed roof of the Paris property’s upper level, which is arranged as an open-plan living room and kitchen, with a mezzanine level sleeping area above. The master bedroom and a home studio tumble off this main living space.
An art nouveau-style staircase spirals down to a second living room and bedroom below, with rooms arranged enfilade and opening onto a private yard.
The building’s industrial history has been heightened across the split-level home thanks to exposed beams and stone surfaces, and the original wood-stove, which rises through the height of the home.
