Project Details

This home, the architect’s own, is anything but ordinary, from its fairytale shaped exterior down to the last detail in the house. Upon entering, a ceiling high bookcase in the living room catches the eye. Made of steel and glass, Bartel built the bookcase using panels of bubble glass pressed between a complex system of bolts. The bookcase spans the height of the room and extends to both the basement and upstairs loft. At the top of the stairs, a glass hatch inspired by the Paris metro lifts to reveal a sleeping loft with a four-poster bed and art studio. Downstairs, an antiqued panel door leads to a barrel vaulted bedroom done in light orange. The house’s major attraction is an enormous clock on the ceiling, built by Bartel himself. The clock, which keeps perfect time, was inspired by one at the Musee d’Orsay. Wall murals done by the architect’s son dot the residence, both inside and outside.
