In the absence of any budget constraints, Buhrmann subsequently addressed 3,500-
Square foot apartment for up to 8 family members, located in Haussmann building, 1850s, more than 4-
During the year, full use of the best possible materials and craftsmen created a completely customized and unique design concept, which is French delicacy and 21-Comfortable century.
Buhrmann rebuilt each room almost from scratch, stripping the apartment to bare bones.
"The buildings in Paris are rarely disappointing," he said.
The apartment has a ceiling of more than 4 m and is a real gem.

The rest of the apartment is new.

Thanks to the joint efforts of skilled businessmen from three different continents and craftsmen from London, it is also a room divider for privacy, separating the public and private areas of the apartment, at the same time, the amount of light at the entrance is increased.
"In the second home, it is not always practical to have flowers every day, but I hope that visitors to the apartment are welcomed by color and life," explains Buhrmann . ".

The site has proved to be a major challenge.
"Various components from different experts, usually from different countries;
