Interior architect Laura Gonzalez has recently unveiled the new Brasserie Auteuil in Paris

The urban and welcoming brasserie has been designed as a breath of fresh air on the edge of the coulée verte in the 16th arrondissement. Created as a space that the designer herself would want to go with friends and family, the artifices were removed and the 500 square-metre space with terrace and roof top was laid bare and transformed into a bright and friendly sanctuary.

BRASS-AUTEUIL-640R-1

It is a chic and warm restaurant where the mix of rough coverings and precious materials, which can sometimes be intimidating, is made welcoming thanks to the almost exclusive use of natural materials – plywood, straw, and linen – and the remarkable planting work by Arôm PARIS. The restaurant opens onto a bar that is set out in an island configuration with a terazzo worktop and a thick oak floor. Above, a central element acts as the focal point with a collection of suspended bamboo and succulent plants hanging in raffia nets.

The dining area embraces a relaxed feel and incorporates light oak chairs with a white-painted bistro style base, industrial furniture and appliques picked up at the Saint Ouen flea market. Behind the bar, the lounge area houses a pool table and linen sofa, and the stairway, with its dark blue background, leads up to the rooftop. Designed as an urban sanctuary, the space appears isolated from the outside world thanks to a collection of terracotta pots, wooden planters and furniture by Tolix. Ethnic-inspired throw cushions and patterns complete the design to create a welcoming environment for guests.
