Matteo Cainer Architecture has submitted their latest project: Foret Urbaine Paris. This renovation focuses on transforming a Parisian top-floor apartment where it is surrounded by beautiful Bois de Boulogne and the Jardin du Ranelagh. Occupants would be spoiled with 360-degree views of city’s historic monuments, from the Tour Eiffel to La Défense, Les Invalides, and Longchamp. This is actually an abandoned apartment, originally features two floors and fragmented by countless rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, walk-in closets, service rooms. Now, this building is undergoing a total makeover, it is transformed into a light-flooded penthouse and reinterpreted as an “eye on the city”.
Both interiors and exteriors of Foret Urbaine Paris were designed in details, from door handles to stairs and its double-height spaces. Matteo Cainer Architecture ensures that interior public space would be designed to evoke a clearing in a forest, a nice gathering place that offers light and tranquility. All bedrooms and kitchen will be fully equipped. There’s a large landscaped patio that allows you to enjoy open space to the sky, it’s designed as part of lounge, dining room, and fireplace. The glass walls also add spacious feeling to the entire living room area, it boosts the idea of surrounding occupants with nature. This patio redefines the living spaces area as urban forest high above the dense of city street-scape.
The roof offers magnificent views, especially at night. This is the main attraction of the Forêt Urbaine concept. Conceived with specific landscape design with different areas of interaction, the roof also comes with a light structural-glass veranda. This area is completed with entertainment and gym space, enhanced by rich vegetation to evoke a contemporary hanging gardens.
