Modernization of a parisian brasserie
Brasserie Le Balzac
“Le Balzac” is a historic brasserie located a short walk from the Arc de Triomphe.
Honoré de Balzac said that “the café is the people’s parliament”, and the brasserie has honoured him by being a popular meeting place in the 8th arrondissement for 20 years.
As it wanted to modernise its building, Le Balzac chose Tétris to fully redevelop its interior, emphasising a retro and industrial concept.
The brasserie occupies a ground floor and basement in a Haussmann building at the junction between Avenue de Friedland and Rue Balzac. For this reason, in addition to the time frame imposed due to asbestos removal and reinforcement of the structure, the project time frame of 15 weeks in the summer period – at an occupied site – was a real challenge for Tétris.
