I have known Lola and Joseph since they were teenagers. Together we had thought about their respective rooms during the renovation of their living space orchestrated by their parents. Joseph was already making music and wanted to have long work surfaces for his record collection and instruments. Lola wanted to put a piece of art on the walls that had been given to her for her birthday and dreamed of pushing back the walls of her little childhood bedroom.
The two of them were already accomplices.
As young adults, they decided to live together in a large flat rather than living separately in small flats. After finding the rare gem at the end of a cul-de-sac in the 11th arrondissement, they came knocking on my door to redistribute and renovate the flat. The instructions were simple: each person to have their own private space, a common space including the kitchen, a linen room and a guest toilet. A holiday spirit, keeping the exposed stones and the beams in the living room
