This historic building hosts stores of all kinds, selling everything from clothing to perfumery to gifts. On the ground floor is also the Grande Épicerie de Paris, a gourmet store that has been offering exclusive local and non-local products since 1923, often prepared on site by skilled pastry chefs, cooks, bakers and apprentices.

Natural light as a raw material
In Möet Hennessy’s new offices, each room has large windows that flood the spaces with natural light and overlook either the cityscape or the central patio, which is full of greenery. The spaces are comfortable, bright and soundproofed, equipped with removable partitions and enriched with greenery. Shared spaces and those for individual use are balanced with each other. Parquet, carpets, chandeliers and signs enrich the rooms, furnished with care and elegance.
