The City of Paris instigated the renovation of two pavilions at the Parc Floral, with a view to turning them into open ground greenhouses allowing the arrival of new botanical collections.
Harmonizing with the original aestheticism of the site, our proposal uses large polycarbonate eaves to extend the glass roof. This brings a more diffused light into the greenhouses, while roof shingles shade the adjacent passageways.
