Eugène-Eugène — Paris, France
Located in Puteaux, an area just outside of Paris, Eugène-Eugène is not hard to miss, for it occupies an imposing glass and metal structure, which used to be a commercial greenhouse.
Making the most of the vast light-filled space, Olivier Marty and Karl Fournier of local outfit Studio KO, have stuck to their design DNA and created a space that pays tribute to the building’s former life, while bringing in a sense of considered modernism. As such, lush greenery is dotted throughout the room, while hanging pot plants preside over a central green marble bar. This is surrounded by various seating areas - that are subdivided into zones by latticework partitions - to include cosy niches with low bamboo sofas and seagrass rugs, a private dining alcove and covered open outdoor terraces.
Continuing with the theme, there is a kitchen garden on the back terrace, where the chef grows herbs for an all-day menu using fresh, seasonal produce. We suggest a long, lazy Sunday brunch before heading back to the hustle and bustle of Paris’ inner city.
