Naturehumaine creates living spaces for two athletically inclined children.

Details: ‘In Suspension’ by Naturehumaine Architecture et Design is an interior re-organization that has transformed the top two levels of a building into a double-height urban home for a client’s athletically inclined children, now grown adults.

Say the architects, “The primary goal is to create a shared living space in which all utilitarian functions are shared but which still allows each person to have privacy. The architectural concept consists in removing the floor currently separating the two levels to create a wide-open space in which two large boxes appear to float in mid-air.”

“These suspended boxes, adorned with unfinished plywood panels, each contain a bedroom and a bathroom. This configuration creates three gaps, each being two floors high; the centre gap becomes a physical exercise room with a pair of gymnastics rings.”

“The whole structure is connected lengthwise by a block that is painted black; the block accommodates different services, including stairways, a shower room and part of the kitchen.”

“A large island with unfinished wood painted white delineates the kitchen space, with sliding lacquered bookshelves underneath the wooden boxes.”
