Hell's kitchen est un quartier plein de saveurs et d’énergie. Nous racontons cette ville verticale avec des cartes postales comme des petits scenarii qui illustrent le projet. C’est un mélange entre le mode de vie new-yorkais et les petits plaisirs du quotidien dans une grille architecturale évoquant les blocs et la tour si représentative de New York.

Hell’s kitchen is a neighborhood full of flavours and energy. We tell this vertical city with postcards such as small scenarii that illustrate the project. It is a mixture between the New York way of life and the small pleasures of everyday life in an architectural grid evoking the blocks and the tower so representative of New York.
