The concept of the restaurant is to offer a design which fits the urban universe of the hot dog. With Wood Rock Coudamy Architecture invents an unprecedented and radical fast food experience, which stands in sharp contrast with traditional restaurants. The tables and chairs have been removed to propose a brand new approach. The hot dog is shared as if in a picnic or outdoor in an urban area, thus the clients make this wooden uneven ground their own.

The restaurant was thought over as a landscape, a heap of irregular stones which the clients sit on to enjoy their meal. This set of volumes was made in raw timber from two tints, thanks to a cutting edge technical and design approach. The landscape reaches out to the ceiling to make a strong visual effect from the street but also to add lightings in the « rocks » on the ceiling.
