Silvestrin’s work has an innate classicism that lends itself to longevity. A modern-day disciple of the great Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio (Silvestrin married his second wife in the Villa Godi), he designs buildings and interiors with a Vitruvian penchant for proportion. The principles on display in the Paris apartment, he believes, ‘had meaning 1,000 years ago, have meaning now and will continue to have one 1,000 years from now’.
