Apartment by Suduca & Mérillou in Toulouse, FR

This penthouse had been built by a Le Corbusier disciple in the late 60's. Two floors and a 4300 square-foot terrace overlook the medieval churches roofs of Toulouse.

Unchanged since its construction, Suduca & Mérillou have restructured this huge space for adapting to life today. They retained the 15ft high sloping ceiling in the living room and all the large sunny openings. For the materials, they brought clear and soft wood, warm wool flooring, modern painted concrete, sensual silks and velvets.

Then, in a masterful way, paintings by Guy de Rougemont and Bruce Typpett coexist with works of Lalanne amd Vasarely, as vintage Jean Royère, Christian Badin and Paul Lazlo furniture united with French and German antiques pieces.

"We designed this place as workshop, in order to live among books and art works of all origins in total harmony".
