Nüba Club is a Paris project on the banks of the Seine in the recently revitalised Gare d’ Austerlizt district. Designed by Emmanuel Picault and Ludwig Godefroy, two of the French architects who were living abroad in Mexico, along with Paris-based colleague Nicolas Sisto, who came on board for the project.
The design for Nüba Club draws up on mexican motifs and strongly relying on the beauty of the materials through a French eye and interpretation. Happy to see an interior with a different take on a mexican influence. I'm a big fan of the textural stone combined with the geometric shapes and copper overlay, makes for some beautiful and moody views through the space, perfect for a club. Geometric inspiration.
The trio decided to transport key materials over from Central America for authenticity, shipping over five tonnes of volcanic stone from Veracruz to Le Havre, 200 sqm of León leather for the walls, and 300 sqm of Santa Clara Del Cobre copper leaf for the ceiling.
The restaurant-slash-club is split into two main areas, with angular motifs, straight edges and geometric, solid furniture.
