Line of thought
In this daring home, the ancient rafters support steel skylights and exposed brickwork blends with white walls and sharp cabinetry. Interesting angles and cutting-edge technology make up Rue des Jeûneurs’ bold form, while shapely lamps and thoughtful artworks add character. The airy rooms may feel quiet but you’re surprisingly well-placed for Paris’ most bustling spots. The Louvre is within walking distance, and the Jardin du Palais Royal and the Folies Bergères are even closer.
Spheres of influence
A family of four, your hosts split their time between homes in France and Hong Kong – she’s an accountant and he’s in electronics. They purchased this apartment when it was a collection of old servants’ rooms and together opened them out to bring in new light.
A seamless blend of old and new, this home fills the entire fifth floor and overlooks a quiet courtyard. Each room is wired into the state-of-the-art sound system – from the fresh master bedroom to the atmospheric bathrooms. The lighting is innovative too. You’ll find contemporary chandeliers hanging above the dining table, and there’s industrial-style lighting amidst the kitchen’s wooden beams. An original chimney sits between here and the sitting room, where the furniture is pared-back and clean-lined. But the children’s rooms are more colourful than cool, and are filled with toys and books.
While there is air-conditioning in this home, it is not throughout, and can only be found in second and third bedroom.
There is an under floor air-conditioning system keeping the sitting room and kitchen cold during summer.
The sofabed in the office can accommodate two additional guests. Please let our reservations team know if you want this to be set up. We will also set up a collapsible wardrobe for your stay.
As there is no permanent storage in the third bedroom, we will provide a hanging rail for your stay.
There is a single bed under the bed in the third bedroom where one additional guest can sleep. Please let our reservations team know if you need this set up.
