 Visit of Maison La Roche – Paris 75016

Built between 1923 et 1925 By Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, la Maison La Roche is a very peculiar architectural project in order to gather a gallery of paintings and apartments for its owner and collector: Raoul La Roche at the bottom of a dead end in the 16th arrondissement, an underdeveloped neighborhood then.

The use of new building materials such as reinforced concrete allows Le Corbusier to implement what he will name in 1927, the “Five Points of a New Architecture” such as : free facade, free plan, long windows, roof garden, and piles.

La Roche House represents an emblematic testimony of the Modern Movement, preceding that of Villa Savoye (1928) in Poissy.

From 1925 to 1933 many architects, writers, artists, and collectors come to visit this experimental house, leaving a trace of their passage by signing the guestbook in the hall. La Maison La Roche and the adjoining Jeanneret House were classified as Historic Monuments in 1996. They were the subject of several restoration campaigns from 1970.

Hôtel de la Païva

Love, politics, sensuality and dream decorations – Paris 8

The Hotel de la Paiva is one of these elegant mansions that line the prestigious avenue des Champs Elysées.

The best artists of the mid 19th century built and decorated it for the daughter of a humble Polish Jewish tailor.

Esther Lachmann became one of the most prominent courtesans of Paris after marrying the wealthy Prussian Count Guido Henckel Von Donnersmarck. However, her dazzling social ambitions were no longer compatible with a commoner’s name! Esther therefore chose a new identity with hints of nobility… thus appeared La Paiva!

Her parties were famous and attracted the Parisian smart set. La Paiva entertained countless personalities of the Second Empire, politicians, artists, writers and entrepreneurs.

Among those were the Goncourt brothers, the writer Théophile Gauthier or Léon Gambetta who was Prime Minister from 1881 to 1882.

The exclusive visit of Louis Vuitton’s new gallery – Asnières 92

Let us return to the intimacy and history of this famous French luxury house

In 1859, with a view to expansion, Louis Vuitton moved the nerve-center of his business from Paris to Asnières.

It was a strategic choice to facilitate supply and distribution, since the new workshop was built near the River Seine and just a stone’s throw from the first ever railway line to Paris.

Constructed in the style pioneered by Eiffel, the new building also housed the Vuitton family, who lived on the top floor, in order to remain as close as possible to day-to-day operations.

Over time, as orders flowed in, the workshop continually expanded, taking on its current form towards the end of the 19th century, when it was renovated in the Art Nouveau style by artisans from the Nancy School.
Some emblematic pieces are still realized today: trunks, models in rare and exotic leathers and special orders.

This exclusive visit will allow us to enter into the intimacy of this legendary House, to highlight the link with the workshops and to better perceive the Louis Vuitton universe.

Visit exclusive of the Florence de Ponthaud- Neyrat sculpture workshop – Paris 7

After an academic career at the Beaux-Arts in Paris, a disciple of CÉSAR, ETIENNE-MARTIN, CARDOT and a passage in the studio of Nino BRUSCHI in Carrara, Florence de Ponthaud-Neyrat discovers the powerful art of Germaine RICHIER, her relentless quest for the balance, the strength of the carved void.

However, after meeting Robert COUTURIER, his spiritual father, the artist will change in size and material, opening a new path to his creation.

Florence de Ponthaud collects branches, bark and leaves gleaned from nature and transforms his “treasure” into a bronze bestiary, realistic, authentic and magnificent by a personal poetry.

In her workshop, exclusively focused on her creation, she twists, curves, prints the movement with wire and aluminum wire, structure and balance her studies. Feverish in the foundry, nourished by “her” artists, Florence splits, chisels his burnt woods, assembles her “treasure”, chooses such a rounded branch to form a gluteus muscle, such acorn to sculpt an eye, welds space … Weighing game, weights and counterweights. Florence plays with the shadow and the light, the voids and the full ones, the transparencies, intertwines its stranded nature until obtaining unique pieces of bronze. The metamorphosis of a nature in search of eternity.

Florence has accepted to open to us as  his studio, a real cabinet of curiosities, to tell us her work and her various sources of inspiration
