Architecture, space and volumes are the unswerving foundations of Didier Gomez’s initial drive for any of his projects.
He has a vast knowledge and appreciation of historical and cultural influences as well as a passion for the decorative arts which he masterfully combines into each new environment to create a strong, unique identity with an injection of past references both in contrast and in harmony with his vision of modernity.
This singularity borne out of his specific sensitivity and expressed in his work means that each project is unique whether it stems from the location or the native culture, either Asian, African, Arabic or European.
Didier is renowned for his great sensibility for materials, colours, attention to detail and proportions which invariably shine through each of his projects characterised by their singularity, mix of styles and a deep understanding of the discerning international clients’ wishes and aspirations.
Didier Gomez’s architecture and interior design company was created in 1985 and has been recognised ever since as one of the world’s leading design studios in the luxury market.
