A Parisian might call this apartment a 'typical Immeuble Hausmannien': venerable, imposing, grand. But look closer. The entire property has been carefully reconfigured - walls moved, rooms re-proportioned - to offer the most modern of living spaces. The kitchen is now central, and the ceilings dropped to accommodate high-spec audio, lighting and air-conditioning systems. With Italian antique furniture and contemporary art to grace the soaring walls - together with a connected guest studio with private entrance - this is a property which brings the modern and the classic into perfect harmony.
