"Located on the Place de la Nation, this five-storey wooden structure is installed above an existing business that remained open during the construction period. It houses a 192-bed youth hostel. The set-back of the attic volume allows the connections with the two adjacent buildings to be treated while offering the restaurant a panoramic terrace.

From a constructional point of view, the façade is composed of prefabricated elements built around massive wooden bearing walls, insulated from the outside and covered with ventilated mineral panels. The bays are made of double leaf wooden joinery with a metal railing in front. "- JBMN Architects, Julien Boitard and Mike Nikaes
