The major Grand Paris Express metro maintenance and storage depot emerges from a park, in a sort of perched valley, to become a large building that proudly bears the quality image of the new network.
A precise rhythm of rectangular northlights illuminate and animate the maintenance hall volume whilst in the north, the offices and the command post are located within three large glazed volumes.
A matt glazed terracotta cladding deploys over this great alignment, a tense cameo.
