Pied-à-terre – Old Town, Nice
"Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated." -- Paul Rand
Located in the heart of Nice’s iconic old town district sits this distinct Pied-à-Terre. The property design is enhanced by a striking navy blue colour narrative that is carried
throughout the home. This bold colour is complemented by light walls and flooring.
“The role of the designer is that of a good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests.” –Charles Eames
Project; Interior Design French Riviera. In the heart of Nice’s bustling Old Town, we designed a Pied-à-Terre for our international client. An imperative element of the redesign was to respect the history of the building. The structure dates back to the 18th century and is situated in the historic centre of the region.
Chevron parquet flooring, rich velvets, details in gold and brass, coupled with the imperial blue carpentry create an elegant and sophisticated ambience.
A key element of the apartment to note are the following. Firstly, the four meters high ceiling in the living area. Secondly, the decorative fireplace is lavishly covered with a cork and gold wall cover. Finally, the railing of the staircase. This leads to the mezzanine. The railing was inspired by the Art-Deco architectural heritage of the city. Take a look at our previous project on the edge of the Niçoise Old Town HERE
