This old carpenter shop in the heart of the 12th arrondissement in Paris has been abandoned during years without any maintenance. The main idea for the project was to create a fluid working space by keeping traces of the history of the space.

  • A band made of plasterboard is enveloping the working space.
  • The old pipes under the ceiling are voluntarily not hidden to remind the occupants that they are inside an old building.
  • A sliding door made out of translucent coloured polycarbonate is integrated in the wall and devises the working space from the meeting room.
  • The cube with the toilettes and the tea kitchen counter located in between the two spaces are accentuated by lively colours.
