Red Nest by Paul Coudamy

By • Jan 29, 2011

French architect Paul Coudamy has design the interior of the upper level of a small apartment in the 10th arondissement of Paris, France.

The challenge was to provide a 250 square foot space with a bedroom, a full bathroom, a dressing and a working space.

A challenge Paul Coudamy successfully completed!

According to the architect, “the design is based on a work on the porosity of spaces.

The bookshelf is a mobile block that enables to control the opening of the bed. Its U-shape covers the bed and shapes the room by closing the dressing, the bed or the working space. This mobile system provides a closed sheltered bed as wished by the client without completely shutting the space. A red carmine gloss paint reinforces the graphical dimension of the space and its delimitation by contrasting with the matt white walls.

The disappearance of the spatial limits is reinforced bu the use of two-way mirrors that control the hidden and visible spaces according to the light.

The bathroom is covered with resinated concrete and the restroom is hidden behind the doors of a fake vintage wardrobe. You can set the degree of intimacy between the bathtub and the rest of the room thanks to the two-way mirror above the basin.”
