Where old and new meet

Quai aux Poissons


This innovative project consists into the renovation of an old dock used to unload products from freight trains. The open structure has the form of a banana and was a store for fish oils. The structure dates from the beginning of the XX century. The roof has been entirely renovated with zinc. We are especially proud that the zinc bands, when looking at the roof from above, look like a big cake divided into small slices. Today this renovated dock is used for events, receptions and parties.

This is a typical patrimony rehabilitation project where we try and keep and reuse all the existing materials and compliment it with more modern materials.
