The Rue Mallet-Stevens, located in Paris’ 16th arrondissement, was completed in 1926 and boasts several fine examples of Robert Mallet-Stevens archictectural work, including the studio he designed for the Martel brothers who were both sculptors. Their design brief required the very high ceilings and multiple levels which remain today.
