Carolin Weisser

Paris, FR



I graduated in 2007 with the European equivalent of an MA in Interior Architecture from HKD Giebichenstein, University of Art and Design, Halle/ Germany.
Since then, I have been based in PARIS and worked with such architecture and design studios as Edouard Francois, Patrick Jouin, Eric Lapierre Experience and most lately Farid Azib Architects, as well as an independent interior designer. My roles have given me a versatile professional background, including extensive experiences in project management and complex technical issues as project leader of a 365-apartment student residence and detail or material knowledges by designing and realizing interiors of a hairdresser' s salon in Paris and a recreation facility in Halle/ Germany.

My attention is drawn to architectural concepts that, beyond a particular style or taste, have the intention of encouraging social interactions between people and raising their awareness of the environment through sustainable construction. Architectural-related fields like contemporary Art, photography, modern dance and its scenography or choreography are inspiring sources and of big interest to me. With this interdisciplinary approach to design, I additionally pursued my curiosity in hairstyling, focusing on cut techniques and innovation of new styles by working at renowned Parisian salon Jean Louis Deforges with a rapid promotion to advanced stylist.

I am passionate about New York, visited the city for the past years several months, and would be highly interested in working there.
