‘terminus’ concept by studio same architectes seizes the opportunity offered by ‘reinventing paris, ‘subterranean secrets of paris’ call for projects by proposing a unique experience, focused on gastronomy. cooperative and fun, elegant and educational, the aim of this space is to reclaim the city’s architectural, cultural and emblematic heritage, a parisian metro station.

the transformed metro station will offer two concepts: on the north platform, an invitation to stroll — an experiential hall, blending an underground market and a local food-court made up of 4 themed kiosks (café, deli, wine shop, a stall set out around the central counter), offer mostly local products or regional specialties, direct from the suppliers. on the south platform, gastronomy — a restaurant/cocktail bar uses the emblematic products from the market on the opposite platform.
