A kitchen integrated into the living space

Equipped with a hood, cupboards, a microwave, a washer-dryer, an oven and an induction hob, the kitchen blends harmoniously with the rest of the room. Animated in its center by a hypnotic mosaic, the space has nothing to envy to large kitchens as the architect knew how to exploit his potential to the maximum.

Stock tips


Meero Near the corridor, the architect imagined a large fixed piece of furniture that would concentrate all of the apartment's storage space.

A functional and airy corridor
