Charles Zana has shared his taste and knowledge in the most beautiful residential and public interior design projects around the entire world. Charles Zana offers “curated stories” interiors, artistic and full of meaning, but also warm and responsive to the lives of the occupants. He wants to herald a new tradition to revisit and combine classicism with emotion.
For each project, he has a dual approach. First, the one of a rigorous architect well versed in construction work, seeking comfort, fluid circulations, details, harmony, symmetry and discrete technology. The other one, also capable of a nod to assimilating, when necessary, the history of places, of appropriating and of revisiting, of magnifying or of “twisting”.
His interiors benefit from a contemporary classicism style and are structured around people, taking every aspect of their lives into account, and he never imposes a style. Above all, he listens to, understands, and engages in a dialogue with his clients with whom he maintains friendly relations. He is interested in their habits so that he can make places that are dedicated to their needs.
For each project, the creator always brings together and leads a symphony composed of high-professional artisans, experienced lighting designers, the best landscapers, according to the demands of the project.
