The Hôtel Colbert de Torcy, formerly the Hôtel Tubeuf, was built by Pierre le Muet. It is one of the most important mid-17th century mansions to be found in Paris.
Considerably spoilt during the Revolution, it was subject to a first restoration campaign in 1990. The project for the installation of the Maison Céline head offices was based on the complete restructuring of the mansion. This included the restoration of the historic volumes represented by the lounges and the gallery which have seen the intermediary floor levels removed for the installation of show-rooms. The works also included the complete reorganisation of the vertical circulation routes by the creation of two new staircases and three lifts. The grand staircase has been restored.
A new translucent contemporary wing has been created under the large glazed roof to provide premises for the studios.
