This renovated flat located in the vibrant city of Marseille around 60 square meter boasts a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea. The reconfiguration of the living space has been thoughtfully planned to provide unobstructed ocean vistas from every room. The fluidity of the Mediterranean sea has been infused throughout the apartment, achieved by removing walls and maximizing the natural flow of light and air.
The use of soft white tones, reminiscent of the limestone cliffs of the nearby calanques, creates a serene backdrop. The light oak herringbone flooring brings a touch of nautical sophistication, reminiscent of the hull of a ship worked by the saltwater. Translucent Japanese sliding panels add charm and permeability to the living space, filtering light and allowing for a seamless transition between each volume. The incorporation of raw travertine throughout the space creates a rugged yet refined ambiance, elevating the space to the next level of sophistication.
This classic apartment has been transformed into a loft-style residence, providing a feeling of open living with an uninterrupted flow. Rare walls that remain have been repurposed, such as the wall separating the kitchen and entrance, which has been converted into a full-height integrated library. The result is a sophisticated, cohesive living space with a harmonious blend of textures, finishes, and materials.
Meteor Studio has successfully captured the essence of the Mediterranean through the design of this remarkable apartment. The stunning renovation, with its light-filled spaces, fluid volumes, and carefully selected finishes, creates a sense of calm, soothing comfort, and sophisticated elegance.
