Maison Martin Margiela redesigns Paris hotel ‘Maison Champs-Elysées’
February 09 2011
The hotel ‘Maison Champs-Elysées’ commissioned Maison Martin Margiela to reconceive, renew and create a new interior design of the entire hotel of 57 rooms
Located in the historical building of the Maison des Centraliens in the heart of Paris, this soon-to-be five-star estate is situated at the intersection of the Grand Palais, avenue Montaigne and the rond-point des Champs Elysées. Exactly in the very heart of the ”triangle d’or”, 8 rue Jean Goujon.
The origin of the building at number 8, rue Jean Goujon is the essence of a French Maison (house). In 1864, the Duchess of Rivoli, Princess of Essling, Great Mistress of the House of Empress Eugenie, purchased the land to have her house conceived by French architect Jules Pellechet. The masterpiece was completed in 1866 in the
purest classical Parisian style, haussmannien. The property was later bought by the Association of the Centraliens in 1919 in order to welcome the activities of the alumni association of the Paris’ Ecole Centrale. It has since then been enlarged to become from 1989 on a hotel.
The opening after renovation is planned for April 2011.
