Profile

Claire Sevaux

Sevaux Architecture was established in 2000 and focuses primarily on residential design in London and Paris as well as concept stores and work spaces.

Our style is characterized by clear and rhythmed spaces, the use of noble materials and a balance between contemporary design and timeless classicism. The spaces are livable, well thought out and with a great sense of detail.

Philosophy

The practice is small and aims to design contemporary, well crafted, considered interiors that work with the spirit of the existing building and engage with the needs and character of the client.

We start with an inspired vision of the project in order to produce a clear space enriched by the choice of materials, textures and architectural details. We want to create an elegant and joyful environment to live in.

Design, Production information and Construction

After establishing your needs and your budget we submit a design proposal.

We insure the whole process of the project from administrative approvals, detailed proposals, tender documentation, soft furnishings and site inspections.
