The mythical and dynamic Arts et Métiers district, located in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris, is situated between the top of the Rue du Temple and the Boulevard Sébastopol.

Inspired by the Conservatoire des Arts et Métiers, this district is a symbol of the French Revolution.
On Rue Saint-Martin, you can enjoy the Musée des Arts et Métiers, promising an escapade in the history of human inventions.
You can see all kinds of machines and go back through the history of technology.

Historically, the Arts et Métiers district is the oldest Chinese district in the capital. You can still find a large number of Chinese wholesalers, especially in the rue au Maire. Rich of old and Haussmannian buildings, this cosmopolitan and cultural district is animated by many cultural places or interests.
From the Saint-Nicolas-des-Champs church to the Gaîté Lyrique theater, residents enjoy an attractive living environment.

Opposite the city hall of the 3rd district, you can stroll in the Square du Temple. This green space is designed around bodies of water, statues and small fountains, giving it a unique charm. It is also a very dynamic district, full of stores and refined boutiques, where you can enjoy shopping on Sundays.



Located in the Marais, the Archives district has preserved the Parisian history while combining tradition and innovation.

The name of this district comes from the presence of the National Archives in its heart. The Archives Museum and its magnificent garden have become a real escape from the stress of daily life. It offers more than 10 million digitized images tracing the history of Paris and its inhabitants.

Culture has an important place which is illustrated by the presence of galleries each asserting their styles such as Thaddaeus Ropac, Emmanuel Perrotin or Polka. On weekends, we like to stroll in its small pedestrian streets and its unsuspected places.

This district, enjoying a unique vitality, offers a living environment with multiple assets, including a singular architecture, in which skillfully cohabit private mansions, museums, shopping streets and green spaces. The Hôtel de la Soubise, built by the architect Pierre-Alexis Delamair, and the Hôtel Salé, which houses the famous Picasso Museum, are examples of the district’s must-see buildings.



Between Beaubourg and the rue des Archives, the charming Sainte-Avoye district of the 3rd arrondissement of Paris offers a vibrant setting in the heart of the right bank.

Sainte-Avoye, a veritable sanctuary for artists and art dealers, is home to a large number of galleries such as Marian Goodman and Templon. In this colorful and artistic district, you will be surprised by all kinds of works of art. During a walk, you can stroll through the splendid alleys of the Jardin d’Anne Frank or discover the flowery and green passage of Ancre-Royale, still unknown to the general public. In architecture, the characterful flats with exposed beams are extremely popular, particularly for their privileged location in the historic heart of Paris. The cultural, touristic and commercial appeal of this district offers a light, lively and attractive atmosphere for the inhabitants.

It is quite natural that ARCHIK has set up its Parisian offices on rue de Montmorency, surrounded by galleries, food shops and brasseries. A house where we would be happy to welcome you for a coffee!



Between the Place de la République and the Rue des Archives is the friendly neighborhood of Enfants-Rouges.

Crossed by the rue de Bretagne, this former Temple district has dozens of concept stores and food shops in an old Parisian decor.  Passers-by will find happiness in the designer boutiques, thrift shops and cultural spaces that enliven the neighborhood.

Among the places not to be missed is the Marché des Enfants-Rouges, considered the oldest covered market in Paris. It offers dishes with international flavors in a light and family atmosphere. On Sundays, we also like to meet with friends for a tasty brunch.

The Carreau du Temple is also an unmissable address. Rehabilitated by the architect Jean-François Milou, its impressive metal structure is revealed against a monochrome and luminous oak wood background. A true place of life and multidisciplinary experiments, this place welcomes and hosts artists and creators of all kinds, highlighting the intellectual and aesthetic contemporary trends.
