Jean - Philippe Nuel

From a family of architects passionate about design and contemporary creations, Jean-Philippe Nuel graduated as an architect from the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and quickly made a name for himself by winning several competitions, including an international competition presided over by Kenzo Tange.

Very quickly, before turning 30, he had designed a hotel in Paris, its architecture and interior decoration, which would orientate his work towards this sector of activity.

Following this first hotel project, subsequent projects for boutique hotels followed in Paris (Le Lavoisier, Le Général, Le Duo and more recently the Le Cinq Codet) and elsewhere in France (Le Canberra in Cannes, the Avenue Lodge in Val d’Isère, Le Grand Balcon in Toulouse, or the Jiva Hill Park Hotel near Geneva).

A design that is more than just decor, that creates an atmosphere, will become the true identity and the true personality of an establishment.
Subsequently the major chains have commissioned him for the interior decoration of hotels in France and around the world (Japan, China, India, Malta, Morocco ...): Accor (Pullman/ M’Gallery, Sofitel), Club Med, Hilton, Radisson, Starwood (Le Méridien / Sheraton), Marriott (Renaissance/ Autograph), IHG (Intercontinental/ Indigo).

In today's hotel business, Jean-Philippe Nuel is a name associated with luxury interior design.

The Jean-Philippe Nuel practice, a team of some 30 professionals, also applies its expertise to projects for private houses, concept stores, company headquarters and even cruise ships (Compagnie du Ponant).
Alongside its interior design projects, the practice also works on architectural projects and collaborates with large design companies on the development of design products (notably Ligne Roset/Cinna, Editions Saint-Luc, Roche-Bobois, Concrete LCDA and Arc International).

Passionate about creativity, and with a particular desire to work on projects of all scales, from architecture to design, Jean-Philippe Nuel sees each project as a human adventure, rich in encounters and exchange.
