The architectural intervention on this office building dating from 1910, in the heart of the Sentier district in Paris, brings life back with inherent qualities of its original design: one of the first Hennebique reinforced concrete structures in Paris, a remarkable facade made up of large workshop windows and high floors organized around a central patio.

 

Renovation and raising of the roof have been carried out: the technical terrace is replaced by an elevation of a metallic structure with light lines. This extension, built in the background, frees up outdoor spaces and gives the building a breathtaking view of the city of Paris. The real challenge of this project – located near buildings classified as historical monuments – was to reinterpret and optimise the building’s potential. Inside, four levels of shelves have been redesigned to allow flexible workspaces, articulated around a core made of custom-made joinery.
