This bubble house is reminiscent of a 1960s sci-fi movie.

Designed in the 1960s and produced in 300 units, Jean-Benjamin Maneval’s ingenious “bubble house” now offers a new version. 

The sixties were a time of revolution, experimentation and joy. 

Seduced by the idea of ​​reduction, the Frenchman wanted to encourage the inhabitants to concentrate on the essentials in a space of 36 square meters. 

A small space with a retro look

As the house was completely empty at the time of purchase, the owner surrounded himself with two experts to transform it. On the one hand, Kif, an interdisciplinary creative studio founded by Mélissa Louis and Guillaume Furet and on the other hand, the designer AD100 Dorothée Meilichzon , director of Chzon, a studio which has made a name for itself through the design of hotels , of bars and restaurants . During the renovation process, they imagined a capsule of conviviality, a bubble of comfort in the middle of nature, inspired by a hotel suite.
