From a very young age, Xavier knew that he wanted to become an architect. As a child, he guessed the plans of his friends' houses and knew how to reconstruct them with the stroke of a pencil, under the amazed eye of his grandmother. Since then, he has always had a passion for reinventing spaces from the largest to the smallest ones.
In the legacy of Xavier's high-end Parisian heritage, he brings design to life in Berlin, London, Los Angeles, Monaco… His distinctive architecture is influenced and inspired by mentors such John Lautner, Frank Lloyd Wright, Eileen Grey, Richard Meyer, and Hadrien.
During his studies, Xavier met Dominique Jacob and worked with Jacob+MacFarlan, who remained a pillar of his academic background. Passionate about mobility and the spaces dedicated to it, he also worked with Jean-Marie Duthhilleul on the redesign of Parisian railway stations.
After a brilliant education at Paris Malaquais, his career has oscillated between architecture and interior design. Xavier left France in 2012 to move his architecture studio from Paris to Berlin, inspired by the renewal and energy of the German capital city. Xavier is passionate about history, so he provides a fresh perspective and a new dimension of luxury to Berlin's interiors.
Xavier Charvet is often compared to Robert Mallet-Stevens, who designs his buildings from A to Z as an assemblyman. Xavier's work always surprises by its simplicity and lines that seem obvious for the untrained eye. Just by drawing a sofa, he can reorganize an entire space.
Xavier's designs have attracted an enviable roster of A-list clientele from the real-estate industries, as well as private clients from all over Europe.
Coline Savoye is a French architect and painter. She joined Xavier in 2014 .
Coline's Background is a great value to Xavier`s work.
Although they studied in the same Architecture Schoool they never met or had the same teachers.
Since her childhood Coline has been wandering the streets of Paris looking at roofs, ruined buildings and freeland imagining how they could be transformed.
The smell of fresh cement is her favorite! She stopps in front of each construction site, takes a deep breath in order to remind the smell of her first construction site: the renovation of Credit Foncier on place Vendome in Paris with Anthony Bechu and Alain Charles Perrault. At this moment she set her first foot in the world of luxury and historical renovation.
Like her favourite architects, Lina Bo Bardi, Louis Kahn, Pierre Chareau, Alvar Aalto, Coline Savoye loves the raw materials. For Coline, the brutality of materials is their strength. Her approach is very complementary to Xavier's.
With her diploma in hand, she specializes in collective housing alongside Olivier Brenac and Xavier Gonzalez. Whether social or not, she worked for many years with Brenac and Gonzalez and then Reichen and Robert on the construction of many buildings in France.
