Project: Jean Nouvel’s Les Grandes Tables

The Les Grandes Tables restaurant, by Architect Jean Nouvel, makes innovative use of a salvaged shipping container (the former property of automaker Renault) by elevating the container and surrounding it with a clear case. The result is a simple but beautiful exposure of the innards of the building, similar to the effect of an x-ray. The structure’s clear exterior and a retractable roof allow natural ventilation and light while seamlessly interacting with the adjacent garden and greenhouse. Architectural lighting, illuminated at night around the building’s edges, centers the building as a beacon of design for the surrounding neighborhood, and the ramp approaching the dining space evokes the Promenade Plantée in Paris or the High Line in New York City. The restaurant is the first phase of Nouvel’s ambitious plan to revitalize the neglected Seguin Island neighborhood in Western Paris to become the city’s newest cultural and tourist destination (the completion of Nouvel’s vision for the neighborhood is expected in 2013). The restaurant is currently serving large meetings and weddings, employing famous French Chef Arnaud Daguin, who serves locally sourced regional cuisine.
