Kenzo House blends traditional Japanese architecture with Western influences to create a uniquely Zen-like setting. Designed by the Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the Kenzo House represents the Japanese aesthetic while being located in the heart of Paris.
The house is named after the fashion designer Kenzo Takada, who lived and worked in the building for many years. Spanning four-stories and 13,778 square feet, it features a large living room, a dining room, a kitchen, and a library. There’s even a rooftop terrace, Japanese garden and a tea ceremony room.
The Kenzo House bathed in natural materials including French oak, cedar, and teak. The interior is spacious and airy, and it is filled with light, designed to be a peaceful oasis in the heart of the city.
While the Kenzo House is a private residence, it has been available for rent for private parties, weddings, and other events, and it’s become a popular destination for architecture and design enthusiasts.
