With its French royal past reverberating through its stone walls, La Cour des Vosges reinvents history.
Paris, Le Marais. In the regal surroundings of the famous Place des Vosges, EVOK makes time stand still by imbuing the national heritage site of the former Hôtel de Montbrun with poetry.
While respecting the period forms and volumes, the celebrated trees and arcades are admitted into the intimate environment of the rooms. All overlooking the Louis XIII gardens and the pink-brick houses with slate roofs, the twelve rooms and suites of this 17th-century residence now offer private spaces, a tearoom, and Roman baths, revisited over four floors by architects Lecoadic & Scotto to give a noble feeling of authenticity.
Parisians and passing visitors share in the spirit of the neighborhood and sense of calm intimacy, enhanced by the discreet excellence of the major-domo. At the top of the grand staircase, behind each door hides Renaissance grandeur, with listed painted ceilings and a unique décor in blue and pink pastel shades bathed in light and mystery. While secret doors and sliding walls structure the interstices of this understated and elegant well-being.
This impression of tranquility is continued by the confidential serenity of the Roman baths. Light refreshments are available at the Brach-La Pâtisserie tearoom and its terrace, inviting guests under the arcades to taste the creations of Yann Brys, Meilleur Ouvrier de France.
"A modern homage to French heritage that blends legacy with imagination"
– Emmanuel Sauvage, co-founder and director of the EVOK group.
