before its debut, designboom visited the ‘les grandes tables de l’île seguin‘, a temporary restaurant on seguin island in boulogne-billancourt, france, which officially opened to the public on september 12, 2011. french practice 1024 architecture has completed the ephemeral structure nestled within an extensive garden provides elevated views of the seine river and surrounding vegetation. after its two year lifespan, the delicate framework will be disassembled and removed without leaving a trace of its existence.

guests enter the interior and outdoor terrace dining areas through an open-air staircase or through the red elevator tower. steel tubes arranged and connected similar to construction scaffolding support and encase an elongated rectangular wooden volume. a translucent glass facade encompasses the outer shell and becomes a glowing lantern at night.

  • don’t know about you, but I’m loving the house boat with the eliptical windows from the viewing deck. Can we see more of that?

  • Fortunately, the real buildong looks much better than the 3D Model. Despite the interior arrangement of the tables (wooden piece seems a bit narrow), i think the result is fantastic. Works pretty good with the surroundings.
    Congratulations
