FOCUS ON ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS:

Electrical installations must ensure the safety of those using them. An old installation, designed in accordance with the rules and needs of its time, often presents risks of electrocution or fire. By definition, a safe installation complies with 6 minimum requirements. "Further details" (In French). A survey of a private electrical installation becomes mandatory when that installation is 15 years old.

ORIGINAL LAYOUT
BIAS

Originally designed for resting and sleeping, apartments are used more today, notably at meal times, when holidaymakers use the time to get together.

CURRENT NEEDS
BIAS

New items, equipment and fittings sought by occupants illustrate how use and habits have evolved: owners’ cupboards, closing off and flexibility of some areas, additional prerequisites in terms of electrical appliances (kettle, toaster, combined oven etc.) electricity (need for numerous free sockets) and « infotainment » equipment (flat screen TV with HDMI, WIFI connection etc).

PRINCIPLE
BIAS

Identifying functional spaces: Refuge, Cloakroom, Kitchen, Sitting room… each space has its function.

INSIDE / OUTSIDE
BIAS

A clear line of sight and movement from the front door to the glass doors; an unencumbered flow across a distinct space.

The framing of the landscape and access to the outside are ensured by retaining the wide glass doors.

ARRANGING CUPBOARDS IN LINE
BIAS

Creating a so-called « thick » wall with cupboards corresponding to each area; cupboards are grouped along one side of the apartment.

Clearing horizontal surfaces to enjoy a feeling of volume courtesy of freeing spaces from floor to ceiling by raising the furniture (suspended wardrobes and chests of drawers, ceilings free of technical items)

KITCHEN AREA
BIAS

The functionality of the compact and recessed kitchen area with not only all the equipment needed for cooking but also a table and chairs to free up the sitting room and enable guests to enjoy convivial mealtimes.

SITTING AREA
BIAS

Optimising the sitting area to be able to dedicate the space to relaxation; it must be possible to leave the banquette (or pull-out) bed in bed mode if needed.

SLEEPING AREA IN THE ENTRANCE HALL
BIAS

The flexibility of the sleeping area, with closed cupboards to house skis / boots or jackets and sliding doors (or curtains) enabling the space to be adapted to the needs of the time: cloakroom, storage, sleeping etc.
