Conceptualization, design and development of a 15 000 m2 mixed-use New York-style hotel, restaurant and retail project in a landmarked, historical French hôtel particulier with a glass roofed atrium and a covered courtyard built in 1925 in the Art Deco style, and which served as tax collection unit of the Department of Finance until recently. The property sits on half a Paris city block in the northern Marais of the 3rd arrondissement, facing the beautiful park and pond at the Square du Temple, and one block from the Carreau du Temple and the fashionable arteries of the rue de Bretagne and the rue Vieille du Temple.
The project consists of approximately 100 luxury rooms and suites situated across the central building and the two connected east and west wings, with custom designed furniture and finishings collaboratively designed and produced exclusively for this project by New York architects, artists, and artisans, and with toiletries supplied by the Chelsea skincare line MALIN+GOETZ.
The retail component is a mix of similarly hip American fashion and concept retailers, including French and European flagship stores for trendsetting Opening Ceremony; Saturdays NYC and their trademark coffee bar; Fellow Barber with their trademark vintage barbershop composed of reclaimed vintage furniture; and several other original, independent retailers and galleries.
Food and beverage services are a collaboration with the successful Paris-based, American restauranteurs Quixotic Projects, and include an ambitious Michelin-quality restaurant featuring farm-to-table gastronomic cuisine; a casual café featuring a cold pressed fresh juice bar and healthy, organic meals; and a top floor bar and nightclub in the property's breathtaking ballroom space with peaked glass roof.
With three levels of former archival storage space below grade, Untitled is also planning an ambitious swimming pool and luxury spa, and is in discussions with Equinox Fitness Clubs to convert the venue into their French flagship following their successful international launch in London several years ago.
