paris: margiela hotel

it's quite a logical extrapolation from maison martin margiela's home collection. we're talking the brand's very first hospitality project, the refurbishment of the la maison champs-élysées hotel in paris. housed in a historic landmark building, maison martin margiela will create a new interior design in which - just as the home collection - reality and trompe-l’œil are mixed up. the make-over concerns the entire ground floor together with 7 suites and 10 guest rooms and will see the hotel be upgraded to a five-star category. the project is scheduled for completion in may 2011. location: 8 rue goujon [champs-élysées]. © maison martin margiela
