Art Restoration and Storage campus Paris

Developer led competition for 118,000m2 of office, workshop and conservation space for the art museums of France.  The Centre for the conservation, study, research and restoration of great works of art will accommodate a range of highly sophisticated spaces from secure conditioned storage areas to restoration workshops to administrative offices, library and exhibition, seminar and conference areas.

The Centre is also to engage internationally with other restoration and museum institutions – promoting the dissemination and sharing of knowledge about art conservation. Sited on a commercial Park to the East of Paris zoned, the masterplan study explored different layout possibilities that formally distinguish more intimate people spaces from the larger scale storage spaces.
