FABRIC Hotel Paris is located on the rue de la Folie-Méricourt, between the Place de la Republique and the Place de la Bastille, in the 11th district of the capital.

Transformed into a stylish and boldly designed hotel, the building has lost nothing of the charms of former days. Much of the period structure and architectural details have been retained. The metallic framework, the large, multi-paned windows, brick-built walls and raw materials are powerfully evocative of the formerly industrial nature of the rue de la Folie-Méricourt. The architect Vincent Bastie, with interior designers Agnès Louboutin and Patrice Henry, has maintained the functional ambience and blended it with an inspiring modernity.

As they make their way to their rooms, our guests are reminded of a secret, bygone night-time Paris of neon, cabarets and theatres.

Why are there so many angels illustrated in Parisian architecture, from the Middle Ages through to the 20th century?  From a medieval auberge, where intricately carved musician angels play at the entrance, to cherubs atop a luxurious 18th century mansion built for a princess, to elegant Baroque spirits adorning a great architect’s townhouse, they infuse the neighborhood with grace, beauty and whimsy.  We’ll view the grandest angel in Paris, spanning a Haussmannian ‘palais collectif’, discover Belle Epoque angels bearing blasons, and learn the characteristics of artistic currents influencing French architects and ornamentalist sculptors. Trends transported from their studies in Italy were imbued with a personal  flair.  During our walk we’ll discover a 17th century residence re-designed in neoclassical style by visionary architect Claude Nicolas Ledoux. En route, we’ll stroll through some of the prettiest gardens in Paris, newly-restored, and take a minute to view one of the oldest covered markets in France.

The oldest covered market in Paris is in the Haut Marais (3rd district) and can be found where the rue de Bretagne meets the rue Charlot, taking its name from the former hospice des Enfant-Rouges, which closed its doors in 1777. The hospice, established for the orphans of the area by Marguerite de Navarre was so called as the children's uniforms were red. The efforts of nearby residents and the input from local council team of the 3rd district saved this lovely market from demolition some 20 years ago. Today, with its emblematic history, it has gained cult status in Paris and is seen as an idea spot for socialising. For a more intimate encounter with the market, watch the film made by Laurent Lefèbvre : "le Marais, un trésor à Paris" as part of it was filmed in the market itself.

A walk in Paris...

« Serge Loyauté-Peduzzi is a keen photographer and has been practicing this profession for several years. He is also a lover of his city, as the "real" Parisian that he is, and he likes to get lost in the various districts of the capital during his wanderings. An atmosphere, a light, an atypical situation are all sources of inspiration and wishes to take pictures. He completed a year-round project on Paris, allowing him to see again, in the literal meaning of the words, its symbolic locations and sometimes also to reveal some unknown faces.

With his latest exhibition "A walk in Paris", currently visible at the Hotel de la Bretonnerie until October 18, he presents a certain vision of the capital, through timeless atmospheres and moments of life taken on the spot, that seem to respond each other and to form an endless conversation.

Attracted by light and instantaneous of the Parisian life, he enhances both daily life as colour schemes or graphic lines. Here are some pictures of his exhibition-sale of art photography (all photos are in limited edition, numbered and signed). Have a good wander through ! Find his pictures of Paris, and particularly of Le Marais, in Fine Art photographs or in a beautiful book ! »
