Saussure is a minimal space located in Paris, France, designed by Atelier Leymarie Gourdon. The agency works in a variety of fields, including new construction and renovations for both individual homes and small collectives, as well as public cultural facilities and hospitality venues. Structural choices and implementation are oriented towards simple and economical solutions, using durable and high-quality materials. Passionate about detail, the agency develops architecture that explores the relationships between materials, textures, and finishing solutions, with the help of our artisan partners. Each architectural project is unique and finds meaning in the essentials. The gabled roof in this design was left exposed, creating extra vertical space for a lofted bedroom. Skylights bring in plenty of natural light from above, while a sculptural spiral metal staircase connects the ground floor to the loft.
