Light. Imagine how it changes in a space, how it's being reflected... then shape it, transform it... and there you have it: wonderful effect of intimacy.
An architect duo Karin and Francis Leopold Fauconnet redesigned this classical apartment into modern and surprisingly cosy home. Rustic, raw wood floors break the grand, formal elegance and contrast with urban elements. And the best here, of course, are great transitons between dark and light surfaces. Nicely balanced contrasts.
