Abimis Embellish an Old French Farmhouse
14/08/2019 - Set in the countryside just a few kilometres outside Paris stands a 17th Century farmhouse formerly used as an “outbuilding” of the royal palace of Versailles and which has now been given a new lease of life. Indeed, the country house was recently refurbished and converted into a luxurious and comfortable residence. Atelier by Abimis was chosen to furnish the kitchen environment, a true protagonist of the living environment.

The project began with the refurbishment of the farmhouse in 'château' style and was directed by French architect Julie Smith. The underlying ambition was to respect and retain all the building’s historic features, both in terms of structure and interior. In fact, the furnishings were carefully picked to create a mixture of French antique pieces with Italian designer furnishings and lights with a more contemporary look, to create a mesmerising contrast between antique elements and ultra-modern statement pieces.

The owner’s wish was to ensure the room dedicated to the kitchen plays the starring role in the domestic setting, providing a comfortable and sociable place to tackle culinary tasks smoothly and quickly. To enhance this setting further, the perfect choice was without a shadow of a doubt the sophistication and elegance of ATELIER by Abimis, truly one-of-akind in terms of technology and design. The architect decided to place a large rectangular stainless steel module equipped with storage space in the centre of the kitchen, providing a generously sized work surface, in Pietra Serena sandstone, which can also be used as a table if need be. The cooking block was instead placed beside the ancient stone sink and, in order to increase the functionality of the space, the original 19th Century sideboards and dressers were also topped with stainless steel worktops by Abimis, while others were embellished with the use of Pietra Serena sandstone.
