Les Haras de Strasbourg
Les Haras de Strasbourg is a project designed by the French Agency Jouin Manku, composed of the four-star hotel and Michelin 3-starred chef Marc Haeberlin’s first brasserie. Les Haras presents an original solution to the question many provincial cities are facing: how to redevelop and harness the potential of their architectural heritage. In 2009, the City of Strasbourg entrusted the renovation and management of this site built in the mid 18th century to IRCAD (Research into Cancer of the Digestive System). Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku, the interior designers have expressed their vision of this former stud farm and historic site, in a design that is both elegant and simple. They have deliberately chosen to limit the range of materials used; solid wood, natural full hide leather and blackened or pre weathered zinc to transpose the original life of this emblematic Strasbourg building into something resolutely contemporary and simple, whose archi- tectural details attest to the studio’s creativity.
