From now on, Tuesdays mean ‘Room of the Week’! That’s right. Every week we’ll be selecting and sharing with you some of our favorite rooms. It can be a stunning living room in Dubai, a scandinavian bedroom in Sydney, or even… an industrial kitchen in Paris! Keep scrolling and fall in love with this very modern kitchen.
Located right at the corner of Place de la République, in Paris, this 170sqm loft was designed by the Paris-based architecture firm Festen. The kitchen interiors were completed by the Italian firm Abimis, and the result is a very vintage New York-inspired kitchen. Check it out!
From its extended steel-structured ceilings to the typical 20th-century iron-fixed windows, the interiors create a contemporary industrio-archeological spirit that has characterized the beloved french capital.
The open spaced kitchen is characterized by a large island equipped with an induction hob and oven — which opens up onto the living room without a sense of discontinuity.
Completing the layout are the kitchen sink block underneath a window overlooking the 10th arrondissement and the larger station against the wall — offering a professional spirit alongside striking metal textures.
Both Festen and Abimis were trying to achieve a sense of duality, for which they combined forces to contrast distinct styles and put together one harmonious setting. We can see this in the open floor kitchen, which integrates the communal functionality of catering with a more private layout thanks to the configuration of the working stations.
The overall design functions as a communal catering space that still offers privacy thanks to the steel blocks layout. It gives the room a very industrial and New York feeling, all the while maintaining a modern and clean look to it.
