located at the heart of bordeaux’s historic center, the interiors engraved with philippe starck‘s design take the shape of an euphoric and welcoming bazaar – envisioned as a village square abuzz with activity. on the ground floor a range of atmospheres creates an ‘orchestrated madness’ which permeates throughout the shelter. the development comprises a spacious restaurant, a pizzeria, cocktail and wine bars as well as two workshops.
