The renovation involved a great deal of thought about how the project would fit in with its surrounding environment, given its location right next to Gare de Lyon station, which is listed as a historic monument.
In keeping with the original Art Deco spirit, the whole building was revamped to meet the standards of today’s offices. About 600 sqm. of additional floor area was created thanks to new raised walkways above the entrance building on Rue Traversière.
The flat roofs and the courtyard on the garden level provide somewhere planted to relax in.
The renovation project also made it possible to create a direct entrance into the theatre from Rue Traversière, along with a foyer and boxes.
