Today, Paris Design Agenda revisits a phenomenal kitchen design of an astonishing 170sqm Parisian Loft located right at the corner of Place de la République, that was designed by the renowned Paris-based architecture firm, Festen. The following interior design space is a vintage industrial style kitchen that has quite a romantic character to it, so let’s take a look at its impressive features.
The Internationally acclaimed Italian firm, Abimis was responsible for decorating the kitchen interiors and the final result is heavily influenced by vintage New York. They also have a contemporary industrial yet archaeological touch that represents the Parisian spirit. Other elements that stand out are extended steel-structure ceilings and typical 20th-century iron-fixed windows.
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.
A sense of duality was one of the main priorities of both Festen and Abimis and in order to do so, they combined forces to contrast distinctly while creating a harmonious setting. As a whole, this open floor kitchen integrates the communal functionality of catering with a more private layout.
