Nicolai Paris by noa* network of architecture

A young Italian family chooses as their pied-à-terre a flat in the heart of Paris, between the blue-grey galvanised roofs and the banks of the Seine. Studio noa* has been asked to design the interiors and help recreate the feeling of being at home. An exciting task, which deals with sensations, images and memories. Photography by Antoine Huot.


Among the many facets with which Paris has established itself in the collective imagination, one cannot overlook the noble hôtel particulier, elegant family palaces dating back to the 18th century which rise proudly alone amid the urban fabric. One such building, the hôtel Nicolai, was the reason for noa*’s first site inspection in the Ville Lumière.
The assignment: to renovate a flat occupying part of the second floor and the attic to make it the new home of a young family.
