Atelier du Pont is a multipolar agency that combines public and private projects, architecture and town planning, interiors and exteriors, and reinvents itself with each new commission and encounter, developing an individual response to each specific context. This is a creative, serious, subtle interplay using a wide variety of colours, materials and styles to create spaces that are appropriate and imaginative, both outside time and of their time, life-enhancing for their users and inspiring for their designers.
Since the agency was established, it has completed a range of public facilities all over France and built a large number of housing projects for social funding agencies and private property developers. These experiences have given the agency the opportunity to operate in a variety of occasionally difficult contexts and sites.
Atelier du Pont’s predilections are for housing, town planning, rehabilitation, public facilities, residences and interior design, a gamut of practices where there is no room for habit or repetitiveness.
Enchanted Garden !… Le Très Honoré
Once upon a time there was a new spot in the heart of Paris to hang out in from the early hours until the depths of the night, sip a drink in the undergrowth, meet the odd deer or boletus, have lunch in a fantasy garden ruled by a bucolic Beauty or dinner in a private hut. You enter the Très Honoré as if you were stepping out into the garden to get some fresh air and enjoy green surroundings that are sheltered from the hubbub of the city centre. The Très Honoré anticipates every conceivable desire and mood, however unconventional or adventurous.
A mixture of Fifties Nordic and neo-Art Nouveau, hall of mirrors and hunting lodge, the Très Honoré shakes up the traditional Parisian brasserie an unusual place that changes as the day goes on.
