WATCH: Global architecture and design highlights, including the La Samaritaine’s private shopping suites.

After several years of renovation and careful restoration, the iconic La Samaritaine department store in Paris has reopened its doors. While Japanese architecture practice SANAA is responsible for bringing a new rippled glass facade to the LVMH-owned shopping precinct, a trio of interior designers from the Atelieramo collective formed especially for the project. They were tasked with invigorating the store’s 19th-century bones with a series of luxurious moments.

Called upon for their elegant, passionate and unique approach to Parisian style, interior designers Chloé Nègre, Karine Chahin and Virginie de Graveron of Atelieramo established the new vision for the most glamorous apartment areas of the department store. Including the Prestige Lounge on the upper levels of the store, which is dedicated to the personal shopping experiences of VIP customers. 

The trio also refitted La Samaritaine’s private jewellery rooms, the Conciergerie counter and installed iconic pieces of French and Italian furniture and lighting on multiple levels. Inspired by “the motley style of Parisian apartments”, the designers say they combined bespoke pieces and revamped antiques with custom-designed carpets and frescoes – the fruit of a series of artistic collaborations.

Qinchang Village Town Hall in rural China by Studio 10
Mirroring the approach of the project’s first phase, the Qinchang Village Town Hall has played with the geometry and motif of arches, “which is a typical component in the local, traditional semi-underground dwellings,” the architects say.

YSG Studio has designed a kitchen inspired by Fantales for Laminex Australia
To me, colour and nostalgia are both wonderful things and each has its place in architecture and design.

Chapel and Meditation Room in Portugal by Nicholas Burns Studio
Minho, on the coast of northern Portugal, is a region known for its charming vineyards and river valleys, green-painted fields and a heritage older than the country itself. For it was on these lands that Portugal was founded in 1143. History-rich and immensely fertile, this part of the world is also where Australian-born, Bali-based architect Nicholas Burns of Studio Nicholas Burns recently completed a sweeping concrete chapel and adjoining meditation room, each located on a 30-hectare estate belonging to an ongoing client.
