Clément Lesnoff-Rocard

is an architectural studio based in Paris, France.

Located on the top floor of an industrial building from the early 20th century, at the very top of Montmartre hill in Paris, this apartment had a sprawling view over the city skyline with a powerful natural light. We found on site a glossy white ceramic tile floor, which, interacting with the sun, became the main vector of this project: like skating on ice, like pyramids in the white sand, every vertical intervention was considered as raising a monument from scratch, standing alone in this ocean of reflection. Wood, marble, steel and iconic self-standing accessories were used to rise contrasted materiality from this immaculate floor, creating an interior forest of tiny monuments, in dialogue with the spellbinding view outside. Living here is curated.

Located just outside of Paris, at the foot of the Vincennes forest, we came across this apartment as prim and proper as it would have been on day 1. Completely preserved from the concept of time, every little detail was in its original state of construction from when it was built and conceived in the late 60s. Our first idea was to create a museum, a replica of Tati movie interiors. Until this one sunny afternoon during a visit on site: our mood was definitely somewhere in the 60s, but our spirit was on the Italian Riviera. Or Rome. But with Jep Gambardella. We got to thinking about round golden mirrors for Barrocco, an abundance of swaying curtains for changing decors, changing dresses, about different scenari for the photographer to shoot his actress. Pink, dark green, Klein blue, luxurious 'Point de Hongrie" floors and alabaster Chareau lamps… Everything here is made for Play. Fare un casino. It's Cine Città in Paris.
