This residence showcases Notté’s fearless design sensibility for natural materials, hand-made products, vintage furniture, and playful surrealism. By creating large openings which brings in natural light, this typical city house has been redesigned as a loft, with connections between all the rooms and even with the garden. The diverse color and materiality palette ranges from subtle to bold, yet the result yields the perfect balance blend of originality and tradition.

The concept was dictated by an ecological redesign by favouring pleasant and bright working spaces. The plant façade trapping up the building and a the new garden are the spirit of the project. The meeting rooms and customer areas are convivial, cosy and functional. Wood is at the center of the project. Alcoves allow to divide spaces and offer more intimacy for the staff. The materials, fabrics and furnitures are chosen in an eco friendly manner.
“I was seeking a balance between warm colors and natural materials, style mingle, collecting the fifties and contemporary art”.
For this complete renovation of this contemporary house , Notté creates her signature mix of raw and refined details. With a maximalist approach, the juxtaposition of patterns, wallpapers, the mix of furniture and art works bring a stylish complexity and signature unique balance the home. The color selection is minimal, white, green ochre, and accents a the palest pinks. Various type of noble material, and waxed wood ad depth to the monochromatic style without overloading the space.
“I love to travel and to be inspired by new things, so everything is always new. I’ve never done the same bathroom or the same kitchen a second time. It’s challenging, and I like to be challenged.”
Introducing the current incarnation of the Notté Residence. The interiors of the historic home have evolved over the years as Notté uses her own residence as a creative laboratory, experimenting with newly discovered vintage and objets of désir, curating a global assemblage of unique and important pieces of furniture, furnishings and art collected throughout her travels.
It is with deep respect for the architect Louis-Herman de Konick that Notté renovated this rational house. Modern materials combined with a palette of natural colours. Simplicity, back to the human proportion guides this project. She maintained majority of existing materials and she could recuperate the modern functional kitchen “CUBEX” of the 30th.
