Among all the offerings of the hotel brand Tribe, belonging to the Accor group, Le Touquet stands out for its location. Not far from Paris, on the runways of an old aerodrome, the Tribe Le Touquet hotel is set between sea and forest, sand dunes and flourishing greenery, in a unique and fascinating architectural context. Relying on past experience with some of the biggest names in interior design – including Andrée Putman – Fabien Roque has developed the interiors with great sensitivity and refinement, giving nature a rightful place of honor and formulating a welcoming, stimulating atmosphere.
The shared areas are extremely important, especially in the open air, like the large terrace with barbecue gear and the pergolas with plants surrounding the central space, which transforms into a café in the summer. Inside, the bar and restaurant encourage relaxation and interaction, with large sofas that subdivide the spaces, lit by suspension lamps in brass tubing and enhanced by a myriad of decorative objects placed on shelves and tables.
Fabien Roque combines furnishings of high visual impact with works of contemporary art, carefully selecting fabrics to create a welcoming domestic atmosphere. The rounded volumes feature velvet by Nobilis, a favorite material of the designer, covering armchairs and benches, as well as the padded headboards of the beds.
Green, in all its shadings, is a leitmotif of all the zones, alternating with dynamic contrasting hues in forceful juxtapositions: the black of the ceiling of the bar, for example, sets off the ventilation conduits that have been left on view, as in a metropolitan loft.
To give more energy to the spaces, Roque plays with materials and their graphic effects, marble, wood, brass, and various aesthetic solutions for floors and ceilings. In the spa of the hotel, a mosaic created by Fabien Roque meets its mirror image in one of the two pools, for an evocative, theatrical effect of doubling.
