We’re officially on a French kick this month, with our newest discovery, living agency, fueling the trend. Now there are some fundamental elements of we what know of as a loft that will never loose their significance: concrete, tall ceilings, casement windows, primary color touches. Translation: the aesthetic Corbusier created. This loft is actually located in the “Cité Radieuse” created by Le Corbusier himself. The loft is one of the 337 apartments which compose this authentic vertical village, featuring hotel, shops, school, gymnasium and even a swimming pool in full sky. It is owned by an interior decorator who has painted the walls nearly-black, within which light floors and accessories contrast dramatically. The space has an updated, mid-century modern aesthetic that poetically pays homage to Corbusier.
