English translation:sample area, show area
Explanation:
As in (from my notes):

Témoin, appartement Model (US) or show (UK) apartment/unit/home; sample apartment (before construction).

IOW, I assume builder is providing "bare" premises, it being left to the buyer to fit his lighting as he sees fit, but for the purposes of selling the builder has equipped a "model area" so buyer has some idea of what to expect.

Like when the kitchen units you buy never look quite as good as they did in the catalogue ...
