Listed in the register of historical monuments of Paris, Station F, formerly Halle Freyssinet, is an extensive pre-stressed concrete building built between 1927 and 1929 by engineer Eugène Freyssinet. An innovative cement laying technique has made it possible to create a space with an exceptionally light load-bearing structure.
The building is 310 metres long by 58 metres wide and is characterized by three parallel naves consisting of 5cm thick pre-stressed concrete vaults.

Enhance the historic structure of the building

All the perimeter façades have a steel frame and glass panelling. The connection with the existing one has been taken care of in the utmost detail. In the façades of the long sides (longpans) there are numerous smoke extractors with fans. The intervention is minimal, simple, clean, of extreme rigour and quality.

Inside we have created a white architectural metal structure that supports and allows the insertion of "container spaces", as well as the creation of routes and connections to different heights: a carpentry to be exhibited.
