sculptural bagnolet town hall by jean-pierre lott in paris

 

french architect jean-pierre lott has completed the reconstruction of ‘bagnolet town hall’, part of a larger urban regeneration of the parisian suburb. the brief called for a plan that developed the hall’s adjacent plaza, establishing a close connection with the site’s existing buildings. the scheme also features a pedestrianized zone, connecting the region’s urban fabric.

composed of three protruding sculptural slabs, the structure’s façade is scaled to the proportions of the existing neoclassical town hall. the elevation presented to the street is comprised of a woven stainless steel mesh shielding offices from direct sunlight. the project includes patios and gardens to the side of the building, providing pleasant views for the hall’s occupants.

internally, a large atrium rises through the design — visible from each storey. a large lobby greets arriving guests providing an open space for socialization and congregation, while at first floor level, a footbridge offers a physical connection between the historic town hall with the new structure.
