Being a typ­i­cal stor­age edi­fice from the 1930s made to host Les Mag­a­sins Généraux’, the exist­ing struc­ture was built next to a for­mer indus­tri­al car­go rail­way station.

The build­ing in close con­tact with the Sébeil­lon project.

We saw the con­struc­tion as a large cetacean strand­ed on the edge of the road, mouth open, ready to wel­come hun­gry vis­i­tors into its belly.

Lying on a slope with two floors hav­ing street lev­el access, the mar­ket has entrances on both fronts of the build­ing. These entrances on two dif­fer­ent lev­els are con­nect­ed by a cir­cu­lar hole in the slab.

Inside, the space is dom­i­nat­ed by the skele­ton frame, con­strain­ing the dimen­sions of the typolo­gies’ vol­umes. The columns impose their pres­ence, their archa­ic sculp­tur­al forms stand­ing in the mid­dle of the cor­ri­dor with every­thing struc­tured around them.

Friedrich Justin Bertuchs, Fis­che XXXVI­II, Der cylin­drische Pot­tfisch, 1802.

The building’s effi­cient con­crete struc­ture pro­vid­ed great poten­tial for the new inter­nal mar­ket and food sec­tion to span over two floors from the ground level.

The upper lev­els under the pitched roof will be con­vert­ed into artists’ duplex stu­dio apartments.
