LECOADIC-SCOTTO

SINCE ITS CREATION IN PARIS IN 2001, THE ARCHITECTURAL FIRM LECOADIC-SCOTTO HAD DEVELOPED EACH OF ITS PROJECTS WITH AN APPROACH THAT MATCHED THE ARCHITECTURE TO THE CONTEXT DEPARTING FROM CURRENT TRENDS AND STYLISTIC CODES TO BRING OUT A STIRRING ATMOSPHERE.

The environment and history of the places they design, from luxury boutiques (such as Boucheron, Aurélie Bidermann and Nina Ricci) to exceptional residential buildings, are an integral part of this architectural studio's creative process. Whether working on a hotel on Place des Vosges or an apartment in the gardens of the Palais-Royal, the duo made up of Yann Le Coadic and Alessandro Scotto pull the strings of history, like archaeologists, to better reveal the layers of time behind the places they transform. Through an alchemy combining materials, lines and colours, they write a new and very contemporary narrative.

Creators of sensory spaces, Lecoadic-Scotto shapes places that have a soul, a resonance. Their own personalities are willingly asserted, departing from current trends and stylistic codes, in order to bring out a "stirring" atmosphere in an architectural setting of clear lines. In their interiors, the delicacy of velvet, the comfort of a cushion, the nuances of a painting, and the fluctuations of light all come together to create a pure and singular aesthetic, punctuated by subtle dissonances and multiple sensations.

These two architects are creators of their time, passionate about technological innovation as well as the artisanal. For their projects, they develop bespoke pieces of furniture blending functionality and aesthetics, while constantly seeking to place man's incredible creativity at the heart of their experiments. It's a novel way for Le Coadic Scotto to infuse emotional intensity and singularity into all things.
