Sept. 29, 2014 - PRLog -- Designed for a human rights lawyer who split his time between London and Paris and inspired by Le Corbusier, the flat was chosen in 1997 as the best living space in the European Union created by a British architect. With a 360 degree view of Paris, the Penthouse was described as ”a complete delight” by the Royal Institute of British Architects. After winning the RIBA Award for Houses and Housing, the apartment was short listed for the Stirling Prize for Architecture.

Those who believe that contemplation is incompatible with great urban landscapes or that inner peace cannot be reached while relaxing on the rooftop of a building in Paris, will be proved wrong by this apartment, with its surprising and unitary design.

The pied-à-terre designed by Mark Guard stands on the rooftop of an Art Deco building in the famous Latin Quarter, only steps from Place Monge and the picturesque rue Mouffetard, one of the oldest streets in Paris. The flat opens on a private terrace of 62 square meters, with spectacular unobstructed panoramas over the 5th arrondisement and its surroundings.

The living spaces - American kitchen, dining, bedroom, bathroom, terrace - are all perfect instances of minimalism in its purest form. Elegant, functional and inspiring, Guard's design emphasises the unexpected power and sophisticated audacity of this style that aims to (re)invent space in the absence of flashy accessories, colours, volumes or textures that have the potential of absorbing the gaze and calling for attention.

Immaculate walls, high, ceiling-to-floor windows, continuous, glossy surfaces that hide a surprising number of storage spaces, a skylight-illuminated interior where the sun rushes in uninterrupted, all these elements create the ideal environment for calm and contemplative living. A fine simplicity that perfectly frames and augment the busy view over one of the most loved cities in the world.
