A bit of Tel Aviv in Paris

Israelian influences in these interiors designed by Jordan Weinberg and made for a restaurant in the 11th arrondissement.

Blitz, Paris

The architecture practice Jordan Weinberg, who works between Paris and Tel Aviv, has realized the renewal of a restaurant in the center of Paris. The project is full of details that refer to the city of Tel Aviv in Israel. 65 sqm for two floors, explains the architect “Certain materials and colors come naturally to me, the lighting fixtures of the restaurant are based on those found above all the balconies of Tel Aviv and also on the use of cement (moucharabieh) located in warm countries”. A renewal that has as its key the simplicity, with a sober decoration that does not monopolize the attention. “The simplest things are the most graceful things”. A curved and angular surface responds to a surface and rounded, a velvet fabric extends a block of cement, one color echoes another. A refined game between opaque and glossy, warm and cold materials that recall natural elements: the sun and the earth. The colors evoke plants sometimes the blue sky, raw materials (wood, cement, terracotta) or reflective tones. For Jordan Weinberg, the different universes must mingle and interact. The interaction is also visible in spaces that intertwine with each other, the kitchen opens onto the dining room and vice versa. The staircase leads into a private space, between a colonial style boudoir and a winter garden. The environment strongly highlights the sweetness and quality of the dishes served by the Middle Eastern cuisine.
