Four centuries ago, the place du Marché Saint-Honoré was a convent. Two centuries ago, it became an open food market. Half a century ago, it became a parking garage. Today, it’s a big glass office building among some shops and restaurants. A pedestrian street passes through the building, north to south. Most of the building is office space, but the ground floor has shops. The very modern architecture, by Ricardo Bofill, contrasts with the buildings around it. The glass-walled building was completed in 1997. Fashionable shops and businesses occupy most of the ground floor. This is the south side of the building, facing towards the Tuileries Gardens. This is a panorama of the north side of the square, with its various restaurants. It’s a popular lunchtime and dinner spot, because it’s secluded. And that’s because the place du Marché Saint-Honoré is only accessible via little streets. This is the street of the same name, on the south side. It leads south to Rivoli Street. This is a view of the south side from the southeast corner of the building. This is the north side of the building. Let’s take a quick stroll around the square. There are mostly restaurants on the north and east sides of the square. On the northwest corner is one of only two or three American Apparel stores in Paris. A few stores on the west side of the square, plus a police station off to the left. Skipping to the southwest corner of the square, there are two Marc Jacobs shops. We’ll cross over to the pedestrian passage in the building. There are multiple pedestrian bridges in the building at various floors. The pedestrian passage is a sort of atrium with a high glass roof. There’s also a side passage on the east side of the building. There are some retail spaces on the east side of the building, too. Lots of restaurants on this side, unlike the west side. I like the atmosphere, despite the overly modern glass building. Looking back the other way. There’s an open food market on the right twice a week. This is looking south towards the Tuileries Gardens from inside the building. That’s about it. Thank you for watching my video.
