Hôtel Richer de Belleval (France)

The project was carried out in the city of Montepellier. Located in Occitania, in the south of France, the city has always been an important trading port and has a long-standing university and winemaking tradition.


Hôtel Richer de Belleval

The project takes shape at the Hôtel Richer de Belleval, named after naturalist Pierre Richer de Belleval. The French botanist, who lived at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries, had been commissioned by the king to settle in Montpellier to cultivate and study numerous plant species in the majestic gardens of his home. Century after century, the building has housed both public institutions and important families of the aristocratic class.

Renovations began in 2016, leading to the elegant and sophisticated Hôtel Richer de Belleval in 2021. In honor of its origins, the facility opened the in-house restaurant “Jardin de Senses,” a culinary experience that revisits French culinary traditions.

DEDALO, a Venetian-style chandelier where sinuous forms play with transparencies, was chosen for the project. A 28-light gold Dedalo chandelier with a diameter of 160 cm and height of 200 cm was installed. Dedalo honors the palace’s history by furnishing it with the elegance that can be felt throughout.
