“When I discover a work of art, I’m interested in its deeper levels of interpretation.” explains Architect Olivier Dwek, the author of this interior design project. Designed in 1907, the residence exposed several historical periods that have been thoughtfully restored back to harmony.

 

Dwek’s attention to detail, disciplined design and deep respect for the existing architecture, determined the smooth design of the G House family residence maintained its classical elements. The building’s restored French limestone façade suggests at the large volume of what happens inside.

 

Dwek isn’t one to shy away from injecting contemporary into a classic. In fact, the transition between the 19th century and present day is assured by several other symbols of modern design. With a mainly tonal palette, the soft forms of the building contrast with the angular, contemporary furniture, including Pierre Jeanneret’s High Court Down sofa from the late 1950s. With its solid teak frame and white foal skin upholstery, it sits in unison with Perriand’s daybed.  Jeanneret and his cousin Le Corbusier’s desk chair is another coveted design and invariably all three designers have been caught up in a modernist revival, with their furniture now fetching thousands.

 

Olivier Dwek recreated a project with history and nuanced modernism under one roof.  And it’s explicit that Dwek presented an artistic talent for balancing the past with the present.
