Working on projects in historic settings calls for special discipline. Evidence that the Atelier November practice has this quality and a sensibility to match is clear as readers follow this account of the transformation of a neglected city mortuary north of Paris into a dynamic new arts centre. The agency's positive approach to the past led the architects to develop a well thought out and controlled design. Their solution was fully able to meet the needs of this unprecedented artistic concept located in Paris' 19th arrondissement. Covering over 40,000 mA, CENTQUATRE, a centre of artistic creation, offers spaces in which to create works of art and exhibit them along a new street running through the building, a route that also develops links with the surrounding district. The successful result is further proof of Atelier Novembre's considerable skills and experience in working on cultural facilities in historic settings.
