Ohhhhhh, how exciting to kick of the week with another fantastic hot-of-the-press restaurant design submission – you’re seeing it here first folks!

Designed by the clever boys at CUT architectures, Paris New York is the latest establishment in Paris’s flourishing hamburger restaurant scene. The interior aesthetic is a careful blend of NYC’s and Paris’s combined cultures, aesthetics and personalities, although the designers set out to deliberately avoid any clichés. The black awning and interior ceiling are pierced by a grid of light bulbs reminiscent of the Broadway cinema and theatre fronts, while the black and white cement floor tiles echo signature Parisian hallways.

Referencing the iconic Eiffel towel and copper-clad Statue of Liberty, the steel structure of the bar and staircase is clad in raw aluminium sheets, fixed with round-rivets typically found on Airstream caravans.
