Fun House: Playful French Studio + Home is Beyond Colorful


Architects are well known for making their homes double as design laboratories, but few carry things quite this far. A colorful extravaganza, the built-ins throughout this art and architecture studio dwelling combination are extreme, to say the least.

This work is the residence of Nathalie Wolberg, and was crafted with three ‘dimensions’ of a sort: “an emotional dimension that meets the needs stemming from the individual’s personality, an erotic dimension that satisfies cravings generated by his/her desires and passion, and a prosthetic dimension that meets the needs rooted in deficiencies and pathologies.”

The challenge was to create a series of spaces (out of an old printing shop) that engendered creativity but felt ‘like home’ at the same time – places that couple double as relaxation and work areas without feeling like either imposed on the other.
