With the present threat of Paris flooding, this Champagne bar acts as part of Paris’ flood control infrastructure. The enclosed circular glass bar rests over a bell mouth spillway which allows water to enter from it’s entire perimeter, this water is taken, via submerged canals, upstream to the impounded lakes and nearby reservoirs.

The champagne bar contributes to flood management in the city. The circular bar is zoned to direct water through it’s ramps and into the spillway situated under a moveable glass clad floor.

A raised glass corridor, floats over the Seine as water rises and flows through the rest of the design. The industrial function of the bar is combined with an ethereal monocoque shell that houses the light and reflective nature of the champagne bar’s interior, etched glass gives an effervescent feel with the lattice spillway filtering water as it is channelled through the underground network. Paris’s ornate manhole covers the entrances to underground conduits, this project attempts a dialogue between architecture, Paris water infrastructure and substructures as a way of managing a flooded city.
