This majestic 19th century building naturally generated a sober architectural approach, respecting the historical and patrimonial strength of the place, its spatial qualities, the beauty of natural light, the clarity of organization.
The renovation of the glass roof of the Salle des Pas Perdus now offers natural light and serenity. In the 3 courtrooms, the transom windows have been reopened. Covered with an opalescent veil, they nimbue the space with a soft, enveloping and protective light.
The two large patios and the two staircases have been restored as they were originally. The glass wall separating the staircases and the patios has been recomposed as a simple sheet of glass allowing a total visual continuity between the interior and the exterior. The floor of the patios, mirroring the sky, now floods the building with light.
