Text description provided by the architects. Replacing the iconic « Cafeteria » of Nicolas Michelin, facing the Seine and close to the towers of the BNF is not trivial!


The volume is retained, barely raised to add a floor and to become a gazebo on the Seine. The large greenhouse on the dock sign a presence that is both intimate and spectacular for this new showcase of the « University in the city » that characterizes the implementation of Paris-Diderot in the new district of Seine Rive Gauche.

The choice of wood construction has achieved the construction site from July to September and avoid the cost of a temporary restaurant. Wood brings a gentle light sensations of sight, touch, cushioned acoustics that go far beyond the simple function of the universitary restaurant because « Everything, even the most trivial things, is reflected in the quality of place and time. »*
