Bourg Tibourg Hotel
Restructuring of a hotel in the heart of the Marais
The Hôtel Bourg Tibourg is a singular place, welcoming its visitors in the heart of the Marais in an intimate universe isolated from the surrounding urban intensity. As part of the extension of the rooms and the restructuring of the common areas, we are extending this existing charm with a new game of discreet vis-à-vis, of filters that hide and reveal. A full height trellis takes place on one of the facades of the luxuriant exterior patio. The metal work is inlaid with unique blown glass elements and hosts a vertical garden, it is inspired by stained glass or moucharabieh windows to reveal only what needs to be revealed. In order to work with what is already there, we have designed the new suites in the continuity of the existing universe. The smoked oak wood of the floor and wall envelops the room in a precious and warm setting. The few elements in black lacquer, leather or polished glass reveal their details and each material for their own shapes and natural nuances.
The interior courtyard is very narrow and deep. Across five floors, this void houses a steel structure with large glass windows, forming a column of bathrooms that connect to the adjacent rooms.
In the rooms, a palette of smoked oak envelops the room in a precious and warm setting. Suspension is a theme that runs through each of the refurbished suites. Freed from gravity, the accessories in lacquer, leather or polished glass reveal each material for its own shapes and natural nuances.
The trellis, which houses a vertical garden, is inspired by stained glass windows or moucharabiehs to reveal only what needs to be revealed to those on the correct side. The 200 diamonds that make up the trellis were made on the island of Bréhat and create a unique impression through the variations caused by the diffraction of daylight and vegetation.
