The brief for the site at the Rue de l’Abbaye was to combine the functionality of a corporate showroom for the brands Davines (haircare products) and Comfort Zone (health and spa line) with the comforts of a private home for the parent company’s Italian CEO.
The space therefore had to be appropriately professional for its public, commercial purposes all while maintaining a private and intimate atmosphere for its resident to entertain friends.
This project went beyond the traditional scope of interior design to include such fine details as the choice of linens, bathroom accessories and even brands of Champagne to be included in the refrigerator!
As at the Rue Quentin Bauchart, I joined the design team when the project was already on track and was asked to create the central space and the sauna as well as reshaping the area with colours and materials in line with Comfort Zone’s visual identity, lending a feeling of warmth, coziness and luxury.
La Vie Est Belle
This was an interesting project in that I tasked with transforming factory offices in the industrial zone of Compiegne into a luxury spa.
With a limited budget, I completely redesigned what was a cold and dry space into a welcoming, warm and peaceful area for relaxation inspired by the Comfort Zone brand.
I then went on to develop the line’s entire brand identity.
The French Institute at Katara (Qatar)
The French Embassy invited me to pitch for the project of creating a new French Institute at the heart of Katara, Doha’s newly developed “cultural village.”
Not only was I required to answer the brief to meet a very tight deadline, I was also tasked with developing a concept for a boutique promoting Franco-Qatari culture.
This project is currently being reviewed by the local authorities.
This was a quick study for a friend.
Rue Quentin Bauchart
This project was near completion when I arrived on site.
My task was to add a bit of femininity to the space via colour, lighting and material choices that completely changed its atmosphere.
