Samaritaine Paris Pont-Neuf

Rediscovery of a legendary Parisian department store

 

The new Samaritaine Paris Pont-Neuf department store has been welcoming the public since June 2021, following a titanic renovation. The property is now an exceptional mixed-use urban project, bringing fresh energy to Paris’ Right Bank. Instantly identifiable by the new undulating glass façade on the rue de Rivoli – designed by the Japanese firm Sanaa, winner of the prestigious Pritzker Prize for architecture in 2010 – the Samaritaine has regained its stunning fully glass roof with an Eiffel style iron frame. The breathtaking 37-meter by 20-meter structure was designed in 1907 by architect Frantz Jourdain. Equally sumptuous are the Art Nouveau enameled lava stone ceramics, the monumental staircase and a sublime 115-meter-long peacock mural designed by Francis Jourdain. Beyond its innovative contemporary architecture, the new Samaritaine showcases an eclectic and richly historical heritage, from Art Nouveau to Art Déco.
