Hotel National des Arts et Métiers, Paris x

— 2017
facades entrance

Positioned between the Marais and the quartier of Montorgueil,
a singular design hotel offers an entirely new Parisian experience.

An inspiring and unique addition to the busting neighbourhood in which it sits,
the Hotel National des Arts et Metiers is a feat of modern architecture
and innovative design hidden behind a classic Haussmannian facade.

hotel entrance material

The 66 rooms establishment, restaurant and bar
have been realised using the noblest materials
and crafted by artisans in the tradition
of French savoir-faire.
Materials and textures are fashioned with respect
for the artistic, artisanal tradition which comes to life
again through the designs and forms that withstand
the test of time.

The hotel entrance is marked by 6 hand-carved stone pillars
(pierre de taille- from Paris quarry)
Laid across the fossilised granit marquetry flooring

Mineral coating (by Signature-Murale)
is covering 400 linear meters
of all hotel corridors in an organic flow

The staircase going to
'La Galerie des Arts et Metiers'
made entirely of carved marble
