On the rooftop
In cooperation with the architectural and interior design firm blocher partners, shopping people now can choose between several styles of creative soul food. In addition to the gourmet restaurant »Le Corange« and the starred »Opus V«, this place attracts a younger, trendier audience.
Colorful pillows and rugs, natural wood furniture and pointedly set metal accents merge to a casual relaxed atmosphere which plays with industrial style elements and conveys urban coolness. The grid-like structured ceiling system made of aluminum profiles allows a highly flexible use. Different components can easily be rearranged within this network. This applies as much to the shelves above the bar as to the lightings. Furthermore, both the 340 square metre interior and the 130 square metre outdoor area are lushly greened. It shows that the term »roof garden« is not a misnomer, especially as the open space offers impressive views.
