Hotel Fouquet Barrière


Structure as a bridge between eras

Hotel Fouquet Barrière by Edouard François

French architect and landscape designer Edouard François was encharged of the renovation and façade design of the Fouquet’s Barrière Hotel in Paris, which is located in one block facing Avenue des Champs Elysées. The architect mission was the general plan of the whole hotel, including courtyards, administration offices and a spa service, spread on different plots of the “golden triangle”, and the design of new facades for extensions.

The surrounding area is the most elegant and expensive of the whole metropolis, and very significant in terms of architecture and relation with the context.

Furthermore, new relevance is given to the old Haussmann façade, by the moment it has been re-built: new architecture seems to need a basis coming from the past as a support to propose its presence, even though that one is clearly fake. The value of this project consists in the originality of the basic operation, which opens to multiple interpretations about the relation of contemporary architecture with the past heritage.
