Paris-based design studio CUT Architectures designed the third location of burger restaurant Paris New York (PNY) in Paris’ Le Marais, inspired by the fluorescent city lights and breezy beaches of Miami. Surreal and over-the-top, playful and fun, the new PNY blends together the architectural vocabulary of typical American diner booths with that of colourful beach huts: large tubular booth-like constructions merge the seating with the tables, a design principle also used in the metal staircase which features a white mesh and integrated neon lights.
Exposed brick and concrete walls add an element of contrasting roughness to the otherwise smooth pastel interior whilst the clever placement of cacti and other plants balances out the overall colour scheme. In addition to the great burgers on offer and the quirky interior, PNY attracts visitors for another, less apparent reason: its bi-coloured neon-lit toilets were designed especially for taking selfies, and even possess their very own dedicated #pee_n_why Instagram hashtag!
