A stunningly sleek and airy loft in a converted 18th century printing house, near the Pompidou in the vibrant Montorgueil area
Step through the massive old door into the cobbled courtyard, and the teeming streets of Paris yield to an oasis of tranquillity.
This vast converted ware-house is open yet intimate, with soaring ceilings and cosy corners; its modular living concept ensures that no area feels closed off, yet privacy is available.
It’s set over three floors, with a gloriously luminous and airy living area at its heart.
Above, the central section is cut away to leave walkways, floating on steel girders reminiscent of Eiffel, which lead to the master bedroom and study.
A cathedral window spans the two floors, flooding the space with daylight, while at night intelligent lighting and home cinema contribute to the ambience.
In the basement – which housed a Resistance printing press during World War II – you’ll find a gym and sauna.
Once you’ve soaked up the loft’s designer delights, you’ll find authentic quartiers a short promenade away: rue Montorgueil for gourmet shops, the Marais for cafés and and culture; and the Louvre and Centre Pompidou are walkable.
The Spacio Loft, Paris is a luxury apartment which sleeps 2-6 costing from €890 for room only.
