Project Leader: Francis D’Haene
From the Architects:
It’s Summer in Paris and the perfect time to honor the art, architecture and attention to detail that went into renovating this historic residence on the Left Bank. Francis D’Haene, a Belgian-born, New York-based architect/designer and founder of D’Apostrophe Design was charged with the task of transforming an old building owned by the French government into a royal residence. He worked closely with the clients to select all of the furniture, lighting and artwork, the likes of which include chairs by Fernando and Humberto Campana, a pendant by the Bouroullec Brothers, an Andy Warhol silk screen and a pair of Cindy Sherman photos.
Typical of his work, D’Haene seamlessly blended art and design to create a palatial duplex apartment for the couple, their son and family dog.
