The "Maison de France" to be inaugurated in Atlanta
On May 17, the Consulate General of France in Atlanta moved to new offices in the heart of Buckhead, in the Lenox Building. More than a relocation, it marks the creation of a “Maison de France” gathering under one roof the consulate, Ubifrance and the French-American Chamber of Commerce of Atlanta. The French External Trade Advisors, the “Ecole du samedi” and the organization, Atlanta-Accueil, also have offices at their disposal to organize meetings.
These new, more spacious offices combine safety and aesthetics with a subtle design by Amélie De Gaulle, a French citizen living in Nashville, TN and the founder of the design company Amélie De Gaulle Interiors. “The design chosen for the ‘Maison de France’ incorporates the French Republic’s colors – blue, white and red – with earthy colors, closer to nature. The play with different shades of color, the use of indirect lighting and the furniture’s organic and sleek design give a sense of comfort and vitality, while respecting the environment”, added Mrs. De Gaulle.
Mrs. De Gaulle, along with different representatives from the French community in Atlanta, will attend the official inauguration of the “Maison de France” to be held on June 30, 2010. The Consul General of France in Atlanta, Pascal Le Deunff, is thrilled about this relocation that he says will, “tremendously improves the consulate’s reception of the public and promotes the synergies and collaboration between the different French representatives in Atlanta.”
