Formed by duo architects Samantha Hauvette and Lucas Madani The homonim studio is known for their timeless style linking the past and the present, designing spaces and pieces of furniture. They ensure their designs have a timeless feel, the features are all carefully selected and materials are smartly blended creating an aesthetically balanced space.
Since 2010, Samantha Hauvette and Lucas Madani have been working on high-end projects in France and abroad. Complementary in their timeless approach to space, they have been working together since their first encounter on the benches of Camondo Design School in Paris. From the conception of space to furniture design, they sign elegant and refined interiors, tinged with the patina of modernism of which they have made their signature. “We are a team of 7 people working together on all projects, we are always looking for a sense of balance in our projects and feel that the multiplicity of our brains working together is a great asset!” How do you usually start your day? Never the same way! Best way to never get bored.
What motivates you and keeps you going? We are very passionate about our work so we don’t really feel we are working. As we are always looking around for inspiration it sometimes feels we work constantly. How do you get to know your client before starting a project? We talk a lot before and through the whole project. We really want our projects to be the reflection of our clients rather than ours. Especially because we work a lot on private projects. It is such a pleasure for us when our clients feel instantly at home.
