While I was in Metz Val and I made a friend, Laurent, who took us on a tour of the city. Laurent is a music teacher so knew some really amazing people, including a violinmaker named Alain Meyer Luthier. Alain lived with his wife and son in the craziest house I have ever been in. It was a 4 or 5 story artist loft/living space where they lived and worked. Down the road they had another insane house that they have converted into a gallery space (images of that space to come). Here are some images of Alain, his wife and their workspace.
