Paris House Tour for today’s article. Let’s take a journey to the city of love and get to know Joseph Dirand’s glamorous home!
Joseph Dirand sees the space and perspective of a place. Since a very young age that he has been training his eye, that is why he sees things differently. He is sensitive to the way lights work within a space, has a deep eye for the tiniest of details, and appreciates the rightness of color.
Joseph Dirand is the architect and his brother Adrien is the artist behind the photographs!
The architect behind this mesmerizing work creates space where he combines balance and a classic base. Joseph believes that every single detail should be taking care of to build the perfect home.
Joseph and Anso said that they needed a new space, an upsize. Their research was exhausting because, according to them, it is really hard to find a “noble building”.
At the moment when Joseph saw this house, with 242-square-meter space, he knew that it was exactly what he has been looking for. The architect said, “So I was very precise about what I wanted. Design for me must always serve its function — a space well studied delivering a certain quality of life.”
