For 150 years, Le Scribe, an establishment run by Sofitel, has been beating to the rhythm of Paris and the Opéra district. Today, this institution undertakes a metamorphosis that will end in late 2019: the opportunity to write a brand new page in its history, with the ambition to embody the new Parisian spirit.

Since its construction in 1863 , The Scribeis an essential address of Parisian life. First chosen as the seat of the prestigious Jockey Club , it was the meeting point of the elite of French and European society during the Second Empire. A true stage of modernity that saw the birth of cinema, including in 1895 the very first worldwide projection of the Lumière brothers, the hotel was also the fief of many visionaries and artists such as Josephine Baker.

Today, it is Tristan Auer , the artistic director of Wilson Associates and recognized as a key figure of design , who was chosen to transform Le Scribe . A metamorphosis thanks to which the hotel wishes to embody the new Parisian spirit and reinforce its anchorage in the sumptuous Opera district.

At the beginning of March, Le Scribe unveiled its new visual identity , in the continuity of the Parisian design bias conveyed by Tristan Auer. Steeped in its Parisian history while embodying modernity, Le Scribe claims a collaborative approach  : the various parties of the Scribe (customers, local residents, hotel staff) are invited to co-build the new hotel offers by taking part in a questionnaire which is therefore intended to put the customer at the heart of the spirit of the Scribe . For a resolutely Parisian experience.
