Café Pleyel, Salle Pleyel
Client: Salle Pleyel, Cité de la Musique
Architects: François Céria Architectes
Lighting Design Consultants: Nathalie Rozot, planning & design; LD of record: Raymond Belle
A classic opera house from the 1930s, the Salle Pleyel underwent a major renovation in 2006. The new Café Pleyel called for a classic yet modern lighting treatment, and received a sculptural arrangement of linear pendant lights which unifies the dining room.
On the outside, the tall windows will be accurately framed with red light, creating on the facade a discreet yet elegant symbol for this noble musical institution.
