When Adrienne and Benjamin bought this old Parisian printing factory, the space was raw, dark, and badly in need of a renovation, but the volumes were beautiful and they knew there was potential. They took the challenge and after three months of renovations, an atypical, two-story open space was born. They changed the floor, brought in some light, built a stairway and did so much more.

They renovated and enlarged the skylight windows...

They installed two doors that open on a beautiful terrace...

They built some walls to create a bathroom...

To maintain the charm of the space, they kept the original old tiles in the entrance and gave them a good scrub...

And in order to bring some light to the lower level, they installed two panels of Plexiglas in the floor. The former printing factory is now a bright, unique, art-filled home for this family of five.

Thank, Adrienne & Benjamin!
