Located on 36 Quai d’Austerlitz in Paris, France, the NUBA Restaurant and club offers an elegant interior with a daring geometry created by the Franco-Mexican architects Emmanuel Picault, Ludwig Godefroy and Nicolas Sisto.
The restaurant is in the center of the city and it offers 1400 square meters of space next to the Seine River. The designers explain how the project came into being with the owner of Le Baron giving a party in Mexico City and encountering the team of architects there.
The aesthetic of the restaurant references the Mexican style and materials with a sharp geometry and a minimalist overall look created with the aid of some of the best handcraft in Mexico as a tribute to the country.
No less than five tons of volcanic stones were shipped from Veracruz, 200 square meters of leather from Leon Guanajuato to cover the walls and 300 square meters of Santa Clara Del Cobre copper leaf to decorate the ceiling.
