More than 24 prestigious Parisian addresses carry the Garcia seal, including the famed Hôtel Costes, le Fouquet’s, Ladurée, L’Esplanade, L’Avenue, La Grande Armée, Le Ruc, Le Cabaret, the Hôtel des Beaux-Arts, and Le Rivoli-Notre Dame.   M. Garcia is also responsible for the elegant restoration of one of Paris’ most stunning buildings, the Hôtel de Mansart on the rue des Tournelles, originally designed by one of the principal architects of Versailles.

Other Parisian commissions include the pied-á-terre of the Sultan of Brunei, and a partnership with Diane Desseigne, owner of the hotel group, Lucien Barriére.  This collaboration began with the renovation of several suites at its Hôtel Royal in Deauville and continues today with the renovation of all of Lucien Barriére’s flagship hotels, including the Hôtel Majestic in Cannesand the Grand Hôtel d’Enghien in Paris.

His current U.S. projects include the Hotel Victor in South Beach, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s highly touted Spice Market, which led to a second collaboration with Vongerichten to design Rare restaurant in the Time Warner Centerin New York, opening in the summer of 2004.  Additionally, Le Reve, a posh new Las Vegasresort owned by the Wynn Group
