We take you to Paris, but also to Marseille, Alsace, Lisbon, the French Riviera and Venice to discover interiors between modernism and contemporary. A selection that shows us how to value a recent architecture that has not always been popular with the general public. But times are changing, thanks to the views of architects, designers and passionate individuals. Reinventing is the surest way to avoid waste!
We also explore the "Myth of the Cabin" around the intimate work of a giant of modernism, Le Corbusier's Cabin, which we link to its contemporary transposition with the Novablok concept.
Finally, we meet to three creators, the designer Ekhi Busquet, the writer Arthur Dreyfus and the singer, stylist and painter Vava Dudu.
Eclecticism, poetry, art, escape, beauty and good ideas are definitely not a function of the number of square meters!

"Back to the future", Matthieu and Benoît’s 1950s-inspired apartment. 75 m² in Paris’ 19th arrondissement
Matthieu, who works in fashion and stores a lot of clothes, wanted lots of storage space. With Benoît, they decided to have just one bedroom and a small kitchen, but a large dressing room and utility room, as well as a huge shower. And for the decor, "I was inspired by the world of modern architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1930s-1950s", says Matthieu.
"Minimalism in its purest form", Jose Miguel’s pared-down pied-à-terre. 60 m² in Lisbon
Jose Miguel is Portuguese but currently lives in Mozambique. He wanted a holiday flat where he could stay when visiting Lisbon. The idea was to design a clean, minimalist place, with a large living room and an open kitchen, as well as a bathroom adjoining the bedroom.
"Last stop off the crazy train", Arthur Dreyfus' apartment. 64 m² in Paris’ Jourdain neighbourhood
"Strangely enough, when I asked Arthur Dreyfus to open the doors of his home to us, he backed away, explaining that revealing his interior was basically the most intimate thing he had."
