1024 Architecture create winning restaurant design in Boulogne-Billancourt 

At the beginning of this month 1024 Architects were awarded the Restaurant and Bar Design Award for the POP-UP category for their temporary restaurant in Paris, Les grandes tables de l'ile Seguin. The restaurant/bar/open-air café was located in the middle of a temporary garden whilst waiting for the architect Jean Nouvel's macro project to be implemented.

Les Grandes Tables de L'ile was designed as a place to meet for haute cuisine and even parties to accompany the reconstruction of this island steeped in history. The project is an architectural hybridization between an agricultural greenhouse, a barge and a timber-frame house.

The architects have modelled it after a large wood fibre box suspended in a scaffold structure from which freight containers are hanging, all encompassed beneath a transparent umbrella. The result is an eye-catching ‘iconoclastic assemblage' with an area which accommodates 120 covers and the cuisine of Arnaud Daguin.

Constructed from scaffolding, wood fibre panels and containers, the restaurant can be promptly extended by video and lighting effects by changing with the assistance of mapping for the duration of a party or a particular event. The architects have described it as ‘A meeting place aimed at initiating the reoccupation of the venue. An architecture which must be able to disappear without leaving any traces...'
