The CUT Architectures studio designed the Paris New-York Restaurant in Paris, France which is the latest extension of the hamburger restaurant chain in the city.
The restaurant is renowned for the quality of their ingredients that are selected to provide the delicious burgers and due to the theme of the food; the designers opted for a combination of the New York culture with the Parisian one while trying to avoid clichés.
The ceiling is black and pierced by light bulbs reminiscent of Broadway fronts while also hinting at the black and white cement tiles on the Parisian hallways. The ground floor and the bare walls increase the effect of the light bulbs through their reflective surface and through the use of mirrors.
The bar and staircase are inspired by the two iconic landmarks of the cities, namely the Eiffel tower and the Statue of Liberty, through a steel structure of which they are comprised and they are covered with aluminum boards with round head rivets.
