Highly qualified craftsmen dedicated to the preservation of historic buildings and to the development of luxury properties
Our Group of companies was assembled with the sole purpose of producing the highest quality construction and finishes either for contemporary projects or the preservation and restoration of our architectural heritage. The combined history and proficiencies of our group are available in countless public or private buildings, historical monuments, iconic hotels, as well as exceptional private residences.
The Group has been involved in projects as exceptional and diverse as the Château de Versailles or the Hôtel Péninsula and Hôtel de Crillon in Paris, the Oval Office in the White House, the Opéra Garnier, Matarazzo in Brazil, the Hôtel Matignon and the Elysée Palace, and the houses of Yves Saint Laurent.
Our craftsmen are the heirs of European traditions of workmanship dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries.
Heirs to a rich historic lineage of luxury craftsmanship
The cumulative expertise of our Group members has been transmitted for generation upon generation and includes ancestral secrets of various trades among which are gold leafing, stonemasonry, marble or wood laying and sculpting, decorative plasterworks, ornamental ironmongery, architectural millwork, bronze casting and hand chasing as well as decorative painting and tromp l’oeil.
In our field we say that: “not to transmit (knowledge) is to steal”.
Each company in our group works independently and is headed by a manager who is passionate about his field of expertise. Every company’s team ranges from 10 to 100 employees and their annual turnovers from 5 to 50 million euros.
Our Mantras are: pursuit of perfection and respect for the rules of art; these are the reasons why most of our projects are done in-house built by senior artisans and the many apprentices they closely oversee.
