Construction of the French Diplomatic Archives & Diplomatic Bag Service at La Courneuve

The French Foreign Office has an ambitious programme for its archives and diplomatic bag mail. The building, decentralised in La Courneuve, has three hubs devoted to archiving, consultation, and processing diplomatic bag mail. The proposed solution features a monolithic brick structure containing all the functions: an urban structure dialoguing with the neighbourhood’s industrial history and the nearby rail and motorway networks. This large but compact volume is sculpted in its depth to allow natural light to penetrate.
