A child in the attic room
Before asking the panelling, must be previously isolated the roof using natural links rather than mineral wool. In this nursery installed under roofs, were asked the panelling horizontally. This way to ask them to visually enlarge the parts under the roofs that are often narrow and high as here. Colour, we can leave the gross panelling to play the card of authenticity, however doing so may make the darkest space with panelling color wood. So to bring brightness and create a gentle atmosphere, better paint it in pastel tones.
Finally, for storage, a shelf in height, was installed in the wedging between the sections of the roof. Very simple, it is resting on two wooden brackets and painted the same color as the walls. Thus, she blends into the scenery, visibly attenuates the acute angle of the roof and optimizes the space in order to store bulky items.

Hidden in the Woods, it is combined with the environment as much as it combines: it opens its large Bay Windows on the river and nature while his plays seem to be dug on the side of granite, like caves. The lounge so settled in acute reliefs of the granite stones, with its surprising gross fireplace which builds on a wall in Pisa foam color inlaid twigs… And all this in a setting of a great modernity reflecting ongoing discussions that this designer sought to establish between the nature, design and ecology.
