A 250 m² artist's studio with glass roof and 25 m² terrace
close to Place d'Alésia in the 14th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75014 FR


The 14th arrondissement of Paris has a rich artistic tradition, particularly its iconic Montparnasse district, where a group of artists referred to as "École de Paris" congregated at the beginning of the 20th century. Famous artists associated with the area include Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Man Ray, Salvador Dalí and many others. Situated on the Place d'Alésia, the studio is just 750 m from the Place Denfert-Rochereau and a number of other outstanding sites, including the Paris catacombs, the Montparnasse cemetery, where many famous figures are buried, and cultural venues such as the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art or the Giacometti Institute. It is only a 15-minute walk to Parc Montsouris.
Alésia metro station (line 4) is just 100 m away, connecting to Châtelet in 20 minutes. Several bus routes - 38, 62, 68 and 92 - are less than 100 m away, and Montparnasse railway station can be reached on foot in 20 minutes or by metro in 10 minutes.


The street was opened up in 1922, the same year in which the workshops were built. A door with keycode entry system opens onto a corridor part of the communal areas, which connects to a landing beneath a glass roof and two of the commonhold's workshops.
The double entrance doors lead into the dining area and open-plan kitchen, as well as the main reception room.
A sliding door opens onto a first bedroom with bookshelves, cupboards and roof windows. A wooden spiral staircase provides access to a second duplex bedroom with hardwood flooring, which connects to the first floor via a door. The staircase is followed by a door leading to the bathroom with its storage units and skylight.
On the right, a set of sliding doors opens onto a clever little sanitary area - with washbasin and toilet - whilst providing a link between the bathroom and the kitchen. A set of locks ensures protected access to the bathroom when guests are staying. The kitchen is open to the dining area and features optimised storage units and a range cooker.
The workshop, a photo studio, has retained the original equipment that was used to change the backdrops. To the right, there is plenty of storage space, while to the left, a long workspace with desk and bookshelves benefits from the light pouring in through the glass roof. This main space has a floor area of roughly 83 m², with a height of 7 m under the glass roof and a ceiling with additional roof windows. The structural wooden beams are exposed and the flooring is of laminated timber.
A metal spiral staircase links the different levels. On the first floor, a mezzanine with wide strip hardwood flooring contains the open-plan master bedroom, followed by a sitting room with storage space and a brick fireplace. Between the two, a door opens onto the above-mentioned duplex bedroom. The U-shaped mezzanine on the left has been converted into two bespoke walk-in wardrobes plus a large shower room with washbasin and separate lavatory. To the right is a passageway with a metal handrail running along the wall beneath the glass roof, while a metal step provides access to the terrace, which measures almost 25 m² and has a composite laminate floor.
On the second floor, there is a bedroom with sloping ceilings, a glass roof that extends over the entire wall and a roof window.
The basement of the workshop, which is used for both commercial and residential purposes, contains the workspaces of the artists currently in residence: a photo laboratory, an office area, a room for storing materials (which also serves as a meeting room), a large office with storage space, and a laundry and boiler room.
Almost all the floors are of straight strip hardwood, some of which are painted white, except for those in the shower rooms and the basement workshop, which are tiled or covered in waxed concrete.

Our opinion

The lively atmosphere of the neighbourhood contrasts with the tranquillity of the atelier. The space and light strike the eye as soon as you enter the vast property.
Whether used for residential or professional purposes, the generous floor area offers a host of possibilities for changing the layout, if required. Future inhabitants will enjoy the freedom to improvise and imagine their home without having to sacrifice an ounce of clarity in these spaces, which are entirely white, fluid and open, punctuated by multi-directional lines that add structure throughout.
