81 Avenue Victor Hugo
City Lofts DevelopmentsParis, France, 2009
Conran & Partners were appointed by City Lofts Developments to transform 81 Avenue Victor Hugo, a 19th century palace townhouse, into 40 contemporary residences in the heart of Paris. Located in the 16th arrondissement, 81 Avenue Victor Hugo is a Haussmann era building that was once home to the Romanian Princess Bassaraba de Brancoran.
A sensitive scheme carefully balances the existing historic architecture with contemporary design. Many of the original features in the building have been kept, including the magnificent spiral stairwell.
