Porte 12 designers, award wining studio RARE architecture, conceived a precise and textured design interpretation of the sleek and exacting cuisine of chef Vincent Crepel’s new restaurant. Housed in a former sewing and lingerie workshop in Paris’s new culinary district, Porte 12 is a contemporary ode to craftsmanship and the refinement of manual labor through both the design and its young chef’s cuisine. Top ten of the best restaurants in the world, the chef/artist André Chiang of Restaurant ANDRE in Singapore, is the helping force behind the “bistronomique” adventure of his longtime protégé.

The founding act of the project begins with the landscape. It is rare in Paris to be able to take advantage of panoramic views without vis-à-vis. Yet here the site overlooks two distant landscapes: the city and the suburbs.

Urban yet bucolic, this project rounds out the urban renewal of the Courghain district in Dunkirk’s suburbs. The venue is divided between the very city-oriented square of the same name and a watergang (a small Dutch-like canal). All the more so because the city’s urban planner called for facades on each of the surrounding streets and blocks on the square while the project only contains 57 social housing units.

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.

In 2011, the Gaumont-Pathé group decided to restructure the existing building to improve the quality of its cinemas, as well as to properly address the needs and greeting of customers. The general objective of the group is to progressively renew the image of its movie theaters, often very urban and installed on magnificent sites but suffering from a sometimes dated image.
The goal is to make them into beautiful cultural spaces, lively in daytime as much as nighttime and flexible enough so that they can host a diversified program, mixing Film with other cultural events: the image of the Movie Theater in the City must be totally renewed.

Kuroiwa and Yoshitaka Ikeda in order to design their first european venue of Le Clos restaurants. Their first establishment just opened in Paris next to Montparnasse Tower.
Voluntarily sober and strict, the space imagined by Daï Sugasawa notified itself by a minimal decor in relation to the chefs’ philosophy and gastronomy. The space was designed to be clean and quiet canvas for the chefs’ creations. This attention to the chefs’ inovative process provides clients with a unique tasting experience.
