Gallery featuring images of the Graceful Paris II 65m Flat project by Manuel Sequeira Architectes, a modern minimalist home that maximizes its small footprint with open floor plan.
Welcome to our gallery highlighting the graceful Paris II 65m Flat project by Manuel Sequeira Architectes.
This home, deemed an artistes’ flat by the designers, is a perfect distillation of modern style in a compact space.
As you may have gathered from the title, this home is a mere 65 square meters. What it does with that space is amazing.
Of course, the first thing that struck you when viewing the picture above was likely the ultra-clean look, a modern open-design layout wrapped in pristine white and grounded by light hardwood flooring.
This surface reading of the interior barely touches on what truly makes it a special place. Look a little deeper and we can see some of the subtle aspects that elevate it far above the crowd.
The home is focused as much on being an artistic paradise as it is on being a refreshingly minimalist and modern space. Many of the details emphasize both of these sides of the design.
The furniture neatly matches the interior, granting a cohesive sense of style throughout. Pockets of color sprout from unlikely places, spiking the uniform color palette and adding an element of surprise.
The main set of white cabinetry runs the entire length of the open space at the center of this flat, connecting the living and kitchen areas and blending with the white walls. Next to them, you’ll notice an intricately cut set of shelving for the display of art pieces.
The interior walls emphasize the interconnectedness of the floor plan, with a slim gap before the ceiling. Natural and artificial light spills throughout, glowing around corners and over walls.
One of our favorite aspects of this design is that it reframes traditional materials in a heightened contemporary setting, lending a timeless gravity to the modern design.
We hope you feel as delighted and inspired by this home as we do!
The living room furniture, in white and natural wood, centers on a recycled cloth rug over the hardwood flooring. To the left, interior lights glow over a carefully cut set of built-in shelving.
The living room end of this open space is clearly delineated by a backless sofa in white, with the kitchen and dining functions taking place in the foreground. At the far end, a red glass panel denotes the bathroom area.
Looking back at the kitchen from over the living room, we can appreciate the distinctly different but coherently styled set of furniture here. The extensive hardware-less cabinetry anchors the space in clean minimalism.
The dining table is a singularly defining element, a broad plane of black glass over a black steel frame. This obviously works in strong contrast with the white walls, while also anchoring the kitchen and dining area as distinct within the open room.
From this angle, we can see into the bedroom area of the home, through the doorway at left. More of the spectacularly personal artwork adorns the walls here, offering texture and color in contrast to the white surroundings.
Getting a closer look at the living room again, we can better grasp the stylistic counterpoint it offers to the kitchen, at opposite ends of a large single volume. At the center, a pair of glass and steel tables are supplemented by a white cubic ottoman.
In this space, the idiosyncratic and fascinating artwork is the dominant stylistic feature, highlighted even more so by the lack of color in the surroundings. The clean white and natural wood surfaces make the perfect backdrop for personal touches.
The bedroom is awash in bold red, including the bed, area rug, and paintings on the wall to the left of the tall window, we see built-in sleek white shelving with a sliding panel that reveals a television.
From here, we can see the low interior walls dividing the space, allowing light to bounce up and over, sharing the atmosphere with the rest of the home while maintaining some privacy.
The bathroom is mostly white, yet bursting with color courtesy of the red glass shower door at right. A stainless steel drying rack is built into the wall, across from a sleek white vanity with wall mounted plumbing.
