Press Conference Room
Press Conference Room for the French Ministery of Agriculture in a 19th century building listed as a Historical Monument. The suspended ceiling is made of a series of boxes with variable altimetry. The slits between the boxes allow for a soft light to diffuse into the space. The depth of the ceiling and the technicality of the wooden boxes allow to conceal and insert all technical constraints and scenography equipment (structural beams holding the four upper floors, ventilation, lighting and public address system, acoustic treatment). A random perforation of the panels allows to treat the acoustics and create a poetic design diffusing light over the entire room. The Koto wood used in the ceiling panels echoes the colours and tones as well as the patterns to be found in the flooring, hence tying the whole volume in together.
