Just recently, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to redesign the interiors and gardens of the 12th century Château du Suquet to create a stunning event space for our client L’Elysées Biarritz/Club du Cercle during the 64th International Film Festival.

The project included the design of five distinct spaces in the château: the gardens, the bar/lounge, a private salon, an interior courtyard, and a roof terrace with a sweeping view of the city and the bay.

The beach was pretty nice too….
