The building, built in the eighteenth century, was not originally residential but built to house metal-working facilities in a working class neighbourhood of the Capital. This activity has given the name to the “Passage de Fonderie (Foundry Passage)” that leads to the building. This preserved passageway has kept all of it’s charm with it’s cobbles, the painted wooden façades behind which artists work-shops, lofts and apartments are hidden away…., and the flowers which give it the look of a garden in the heart of Paris.
The apartment is situated on the second floor (without a lift) of this three floored building. The low rise nature of the building gives it a human dimension much appreciated and rare in the heart of the Capital. The result is a particular atmosphere, peaceful and reposing when you’ve spent the day walking across Paris. The apartment block bears the traces of it’s age and origins. It’s not opulent and luxurious but simple and authentic.
The apartment measures 30m² and has a kitchen/diner, a bedroom and a bathroom. The living room, facing west, looks onto the main passageway and the bedroom, facing east, looks onto another charming flowered alley way.
The apartment has been entirely renovated at the end of 2008 and has been redecorated by ourselves in a ‘seventies style…..We’ve put a lot of enthusiasm into it and we hope you’ll love it.
