Renovated Appartment, Lyon Presqu’île, France

Lyon is one of the major French cities. Two rivers, Rhône and Saône, run through Lyon. Presqu’île, the peninsula, is the land enclosed by the two rivers. It is in the centre of the city and is the cultural and commercial heart of Lyon. The area has been announced an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.

The apartment resides in the area and it was refurbished by Marion Lanoe. Lanoe has an architectural office in Lyon and tries, exceptionally well, “[…] to shape your places of life or work, both aesthetically as well as technically and practically by putting at your service my skills both artistic and technical“.

The apartment was old and needed a full renovation. Apart from refining the existing structure of the house, partition of certian areas of it needed to be performed. The living room and the kitchen, although in the same area, can be separated through a sliding door. The floor, as it was damaged, it was fully restored using wood. By using wood instead of plastic it is more neutral and can be used with any colour on the walls or furniture. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
