Manuelle Gautrand Architecture has designed the Sun Dial Apartment in Paris, France.

"The ultimate objective was to maximise the flow of natural light through the space," said Manuelle Gautrand Architecture. "The walls between rooms were removed and a play of volumes and voids takes full advantage of the windows on the eastern and western facades of a building that predates Haussmanian architecture by 200 years."

This project features a distinctly architectural approach to sculpting interior space inside the Sun Dial Apartment.

Distinct zones, each with its own material qualities make up the ensemble: from a minimalist zen-like sleeping space under the roof to a moody wood-panelled entrance.

This project has been longlisted in the home interior category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
