Architect Joseph Dirand was looking for a new home for his growing family when his landlord pointed him towards this buidling that used to be a hotel for the Exposition Universelle of 1900. Joseph is the son of Jacques Dirand, a well known decor photographer, so it’s not surprising that Joseph went into architecture and his brother became a photographer.
In his new Paris home you can see Joseph’s love for stone, from a marble bathroom to limestone arches and a kitchen made of breccia stazzema marble. You can clearly see that he had a very particular vision for his home and every item is carefully selected to enhance that soft, natural look.
