Situated in the third district of Paris, the « Carreau du Temple » has been restored and rehabilitated by the city of Paris. Built in 1830, the central part of the building is a 60 x 65 metres market hall presently used as a multi-use space, divided into three naves with a zinked roof supported by so-called Polonceau beams in cast iron.

This complex is a rare example of the industrial architecture of that era. The project creates two underground levels, a scene, and three office levels. The underground levels house the sports installations, studios and technical spaces. The central naves were reorganised and are used as multi-function spaces. The zinked roof was reconfigured to meet technical and acoustical norms (RT2005). This fundamental change in loading was integrated into a reinforcement concept of the structure, which aimed to have a minimal impact on the existing architecture. The focus was also brought on compatibility issues between cast iron and steel and the rehabilitation of cracked columns.
