Set in the heart of Paris, opposite the Opéra Garnier, the agency is run since 2003 by architect Xavier Pilloton, son of IAE’s founder Franck Pilloton, École des arts décoratifs graduate. In addition to the luxury hotel industry, the agency has gained references in the arrangement of company headquarters, as well as in the building and interior design of deluxe residences and palaces for heads of State. This array of specific projects has enabled IAE to set a tradition based on discretion and confidentiality, capable of bringing satisfaction to the most demanding contractors. Relying on a team of seasoned collaborators (architects, interior architects, decorators, colourists and building site coordinators), IAE is also celebrated for its responsiveness and its ability to supervise ambitious and complex studies and building sites, defined step by step in close contact with its clients and various partners. And this whilst respecting deadlines and budget constraints.
