PAVILLON DUFOUR – CHATEAU DE VERSAILLES

Paris, France

Client : OPPIC – Château de Versailles

“The current dichotomy that opposes heritage and the contemporary world masks the softness and benevolence of today’s architecture in relation to its forebears, the shared affection for space and materials. With Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost, we were keenly focused on realizing a very sensitive, savvy and loving approach to the treatment of the new interiors for the pavilion that will soon house the main entrance to the château, this most emblematic place of French patrimony. Contemporary chandeliers, rugs and metal finishing, designed in variations, adaptations, geometrization and abstraction based on certain details of very famous representations that nourish the imagery of the Château of Versailles, will furnish the future Pavillon Dufour.”
