Project

On the “île de Nantes”, La Fabrique takes place on one side of the previous Dubigeon ware-house, near the Alstom warehouse ( the upcoming centre of the “Quartier de la Création”) and the old shipyard turned to great gardens.This context gave Tétrarc the opportunity to gather the recalls of a place abandoned by History and re-mind us that Culture is continuum made of sedimen-tation & fertile rediscovery.

History of places made of industrial warehouses. History of the techniques that built them, when sci-ence and aesthetic meet up to create a new beauty. History of the ships built with the strength skills and talents of the workers. History of artists whose eyes felt on this universe, from Monet, painter of the brand new steel struc-tures, to the Becher who used to forgotten metallic shapes.

The project is made of 3 distinct elements. First, the 400 Hall (with offices upon it) then the 1200 Hall : two parts connected by a public Hall inserted in the concrete post frame of the Halle Dubigeon. Finally the studios take place in a volume suspended above an old air-raid shelter.
