An Ikea Kitchen in a Greenhouse, Paris Edition

May 29, 2015

Gregoire de Lafforest, a French architect whose projects include the Hermí¨s Paris headquarters as well as boutiques for Cartier and mansions for Veuve Clicquot, took a more whimsical route when he designed his own loft in a converted warehouse on the rue Victoire. Using a greenhouse kit from the Garden Factory (painted and customized), he sectioned off a kitchen space and installed Ikea components to keep costs down.

We’re admirers of inspired greenhouses. For more clever designs, see:
