From Google to Martin Margiela to Facebook, we’ve seen our fair share of insanely dope company offices. And now, it is time to have a look inside the Dior Homme’s new headquarters in Paris—and it’s exactly what you’d expect from the luxury label.
Italian studio Antonio Virga Architecte has just completed renovating an old Parisian building, turning it into the new headquarters for Dior homme. Located on a triangular spot between Rue de Marignan and the Impasse Bourdin passageway in Paris’ 8th Arrondissement, the building dates all the way back to the 19th century, when all structures were designed under strict height regulations and had to be made from the same cream-coloured stone (hence why Paris looks so beautiful). You can see there’s an element of grand simplicity running throughout, from the front office to the work studio to the conference rooms, which each feature an openness that is as cool as it is intimidating. Details like wood floors, glass walls, marble staircases, and concrete furniture add a straight-forward, minimalist touch to the interior, which contrasts nicely against the historic architecture of the exterior.
