B3 were approached by Chef Michel Roux Jr. to develop his own personal library space of his 2 Michelin Star restaurant Le Gavroche.
Chef Michel wanted it to become a private space that he could use both to gather inspiration as well as somewhere special that customers could enjoy a private dining experience in an intimate setting.
We created a beautiful area that is now used by Chef Michel and his team to research, gather inspiration and create new recipes.
Seating a maximum of 6 people, we designed a bespoke French grey sweeping banquette that seats 4 and surrounds the only dining table. Matching armchairs complement the banquette and complete the seating for 6.
We showcased some of Chef Michel’s personal collection of culinary books on marbled shelving within the space and decorated the walls with photographs of famous patrons of the restaurant since its opening in 1967.
Light grey walls open the space so as not to feel claustrophobic and we introduced fixed louvres and some clever back lighting to give the impression of natural daylight during lunch sittings. 3 large decanter-style pendants hang above the dining table enriching the feeling of grandeur in the small space.
The very intimate space and is now in great demand and cherished by both Chef and patrons.
"We are absolutely delighted with our new private dining room and kitchen. We are very much looking forward to being back in business and welcoming diners through our doors again" - Michel Roux Jr.
