BEHIND THE DOORS
The Carlton Cannes is showcasing the efforts involved, the expertise and dedication of Métiers d'Art, that were all required to restore the building to its former glory. The property is celebrating the know-how and passion of hundreds of men and women who took part in this legendary transformation, bringing the icon back to life.
THE FUTURE MELTED INTO THE HISTORY
The interior decorator Tristan Auer was entrusted with the orchestration of the Grande Dame's rebirth. "From the very beginning, the idea has been to skilfully preserve this listed place, while still creating a masterpiece of modern times.”
Only the best craftsmen contributed to this extraordinary project. The chandeliers in the Grand Salon have been completely restored by the same skilled hands that work for the Palace of Versailles.
The Carlton Cannes is still honouring its grandeur. Some rooms were restored with love, others were designed with a modern flair. Overall its history has melted into its future.
"No changes will be made if it does not respect its architecture and its splendour”, says Richard Lavelle, who ensures that the heart soul and general aesthetics of the place are being preserved during the renovation.
The two extended wings are in harmony with the existing architectural codes of the Belle Epoque building, which is part of the French heritage and listed as a Historic Monument along with its iconic façades.
Designed as an extension of the architecture, an actual secret garden surrounded by a peristyle and a infinity pool was created for this project. The large interior patio reveals surprises and splendors as you walk through it. Delicately mineral and green, the landscape created is translated inside the hotel thanks to perspectives cleverly thought out by the architecture of the project. While tall trees bring freshness, aromatic herbs and carefully selected flowers diffuse captivating fragrances.
