Les Grandes Tables de L`ile Cafe in Paris

Who thought that scaffolding and shipping containers could have multiple uses? These containers helped build a café on an island on the Seine in Paris. The unique concept was brought to light by Paris studio 1024 Architecture. The café is known for the haute cuisine it serves and for the brilliant parties that it hosts.

The café is a combination between a timber frame house, a greenhouse and a barge covered beneath a see-through umbrella. It seems incorporated in the scaffold structure. The café has an area of 300m2 and the chef that was hired to prepare the extravagant types of food is Arnaud Daguin.

The materials used were: wood fibre panels, containers and scaffolding parts. The technological enhancements incorporated in the café allow video and lighting effects for parties or other types of events.
