The project is a renovation of an exhibition space in the 2nd arrondisement in Paris. The space accommodates different exhibition spaces, offices, and storages for the Derouillon gallery.
The project aims to highlight the existing structure. The gallery is composed of two complementary spaces on two different levels. These spaces respond to each other through their structure, comfort, light, and materials: one is supported by a fine metal structure, lit by a glass roof, covered by sharp and abstract materials; the other is a dimmed space, supported by large stone pillars and covered by more rough materials. Some bespoke raw steel furnitures, have been also designed.
These complementary spaces allow multiple exhibition scenography and use of space.
