Atelier Tamara de Lempicka, 1929


This artist’s studio is a remarkable Art Déco testimony, and was originally occupied by the famous Polish painter Tamara de Lempicka. It resides in a building designed by the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, along with Jean Prouvé, the Barillet workshop and André Salomon, who associated to make a total work of art. Located in the 14th arrondissement in Paris, the apartment extends over a surface of 152 m² and is composed of two floors which offer large volumes and a beautiful view on the tree-filled courtyard and on the gardens of the Covent of the Cluny Sisters. The apartment includes a 60 m² artist’s studio with a 6 meters height under ceiling. The period decor was preserved, such as the stained glass windows realized by Louis Barillet’s workshop. The furniture of the smoking room on the mezzanine was also entirely preserved. The apartment also has a completely equipped dining kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. A cellar completes this exceptional property. This artist’s studio is located in the only apartment building built in Paris by Robert Mallet-Stevens. His architectural vocabulary is perfectly readable on the frontage of the building: cubic volumes, numerous niches and smooth surfaces. The canopies, the guardrails and the window sills counteract the imposing volumes. The entrances and the common spaces of the building were carefully designed. The staircase is lit by a vertical stain glass window that extends on its entire height, realized by the master glass-maker Louis Barillet, the doors and woodwork are in mahogany and the rail is in enamel from Briare. A true collector’s piece!
