Hôtel Cala di Volpe x Jacques Couëlle : renewed success

Architect Jacques Couëlle has made a greater impression on his era than on the public’s mind. However, one can undoubtedly credit him with having a certain influence in the early 1960s. While he had just decorated Jacques Prévert’s apartment, among others, he was approached by the Aga Khan to build a pharaonic project of a new kind at the time: a resort for the jet set. Surrounded by a sumptuous bay, the Cala di Volpe hotel crossed the 70s and 80s with a certain flamboyance. A James Bond scene was filmed there and the stars flocked in. Unfortunately, the following decade turned out to be harsher and its concrete, somewhat “bubble” style became outdated year after year. However, in the light of a vintage madness, the very thing that made it so decried is now back in favor. Updated by the decorators Moinard and Betaille, it appears under new guises that, without denying its origins, allow it to be back on our radar.
