located in the heart of paris and steps away from the opéra comique, DIMORESTUDIO have completed the elegant interior architecture of  ‘hotel saint-marc’. the five-storey building – dating back to 1791 – was occupied by a range of programs. from being once the home of a duke of choiseul to the headquarters of the historical newspaper ‘le national’. prior to the hotel it hosted the italian restaurant le poccardi and eventually taken over by an office building.

the interior design and restoration of hotel saint-marc took two years. the milan-based studio injects old-age glamor, luxurious materials and reintroduces light into the parisian building. as well as preserving the heritage of the historical site, a relationship between past and present co-exists through the use of artful objects combined with recovered and bespoke pieces. offering 25 rooms that are envisioned as private apartments, an art deco aesthetic is achieved through six different scenarios; colors and fabrics, ranging from yellow mustard, to red burgundy, green forest and blue sky become the backdrop to art and decorative objects fabricated by artisans in murano.
