Maintenance Centre, Lieusaint (FR) - Danpalon® gold - Architect : Frédéric Blerot, Cabinet Richez associés (FR) - Installer : SITEC (FR)

For an innovative bus line - an iconic maintenance centre. Line 1 of the T Zen, the rapid bus transit serving the greater Paris area, has just been put in to service. For its dedicated maintenance centre, ,”The request was to create a marked and remarkable project, with powerful architecture, in shades of red, linked to the nearby RER D station of Lieusaint-Moissy,” explains Frédéric Blerot, an architect with the company Richez Associés.

The office section was consequently covered with a coloured and kinetically-paced facade, whereas the maintenance facility in Danpalon® was shaped as a peaceful and luminous box on a grey concrete base.

“From the outset, the need to bring light to the facade was obvious in this vast area, over significant heights. The choice soon fell on these translucent golden solutions, which met the client’s request. 

Ultimately, the light, diffused throughout the interior and on the warm side has pleasantly surprised the people who work in this workshop.


Sans titre-1

The thermal aspect is equally important: even if the insulation requirements were not very high for this automotive workshop, often wide open, Danpalon® makes it possible to minimize the effect of the sun in the summer and provide sufficient insulation in the winter, so that the radiators near the people working in the workshop would provide the heating.
