/ Printemps du Louvre

An alluring combination of visual cues

Paris, France
2,500 sqm
New department store

Following the original design for the Carrousel space below the museum areas, Printemps du Louvre gives shape to a second commercial wing next to the renowned Louvre Inverted Pyramid.
The project is both a continuation of the galleries and a new prime destination within its surroundings. The pull of the sales area is the liveliness of the installations which allow for the display of contemporary art pieces.

The two-story space is structured into a central nave and a transept by the glass volumes and the staircases. The hand-hammered steel surface of the ceiling reflects visitors and their movements that wane into distance, creating one-of-a-kind visual and shopping experiences.
