L’agence

Architecture de Collection is the first real estate agency that specializes exclusively in the sale of remarkable 20th and 21st century architecture. We offer a new unique expertise in the real estate field.
Historical, technical and artistic understanding of the architectural works is what steers our approach. We believe that the remarkable modern and contemporary architecture deserves the status of work of art.
When we sell a modern house, we propose a signed piece, a real work of architecture, to collectors. As an auction house selling a master painting, Architecture de Collection develops an expert approach and proposes modern and contemporary pieces to informed buyers, radically different from the real estate that forms most of the market.
Architecture de Collection wishes to help preserve the modern and contemporary domestic architecture, which remains a poorly known heritage. Because the best way to preserve a house is to live in it!
