Charles Zana is a passionate architect who combines art and technique in every one of his projects. Zana has shared his taste and expertise in the most beautiful and modern residential projects and public interiors around the world.
In two decades, the architect, a graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Paris, has found his voice, his style. This vision is above all that, a unique combination of art and architecture.
His interiors are structured around people, taking every aspect of their lives into account. Above all, he listens to, understands, and engages in a dialogue with his clients with whom he maintains friendly relation.
Over the years Zana has also made his name by designing homes for art collectors.
This house in the chic Parisian suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine is a perfect example of his unique work.
“The chemistry between the architect and the client is the heart and soul of a good project.”
The clients were a fashion-industry couple with four grown children, the property contains a variety of top-class contemporary artworks.
