Designed by Jean Nouvel of 1024 Architecture, Les Grandes Tables is a restaurant made from salvaged shipping containers. Only one part of a bigger entertainment center -- which will include hotels, cinemas, art studios, museums and more -- Les Grandes Tables is located on Seguin Island in Western Paris.
Les Grandes Tables boasts a list of eco-friendly design elements. The industrial containers have been strategically placed so as to maximize light and air, and it features a frame made of timber that is also encased in glass. With a first-floor restaurant and a bottom ground level reserved for parties and events, the building is also flanked by a greenhouse and a garden, which will provide the restaurant with fresh vegetables.
