RE Residence is a minimal home located in Paris, France, designed by Vincent Van Duysen. The RE Residence is a duplex located atop an Art Deco building with a view of the Left Bank and the Eiffel Tower. It was renovated for an entrepreneur and art enthusiast who enjoys hosting soirées with the Parisian cultural elite. The space was designed to honor Jean-Michel Frank and features natural stone, dark wood, plaster walls, and exquisite wallpaper. Materials and finishes were chosen with tactility in mind, such as bronze and marble in the bathroom, which is lit by a large Art Deco skylight.
The architecture is rigorous and warmly colored, creating an ideal enclosure for the owner’s collection of vintage furniture, lighting, and objects. The property features a grand salon with a view of the Paris skyline and a roof terrace with 360-degree views of the city, including the Eiffel Tower, Seine, Grand Palais, and Montmartre. The roof terrace also has a fireplace, a modernist pergola, and a water pond surrounded by greenery curated by Wirtz International Landscape Architects. The atmosphere on the roof is peaceful and serene, giving the impression of floating in the sky.
