It used to be a dilapidated partitioned old area, which is today streamlined and modern. The new reception area of the Clamart town hall, south-west of Paris is the work of architects Bigeault & Taïeb Associates. The place has been gently restructured with an entrance of reflections cast by polished stainless steel, where visitors change worlds, a straightforward low hall that adds to the sensation of dilated space leading to a series of white Corian pebble-shaped reception desks, branded “Clamart and you”. The visitors’ pathway is clear, inviting and unhurried.
Clamart town hall
“The project is one of designing an interior space to welcome the public. The mayor wanted two things: an area that was innovative, contemporary and streamlined, and it had to be welcoming”, explains Franck Taïeb.
Materials were selected to meet these requirements:
• Glass for all walls
• Fabric for all ceilings
• Ordinary, single-colour resin for all floors
“The Texaa fabric on the horizontal and sloping ceilings compensates the hardness of the glass walls, bringing warmth and a sense of something new to the volumes, the architect points out. And of course, this is an extra on top of the required acoustic comfort. Glass lightwells emerge from the sloped Texaa-lined ceilings, creating unusual lighting and crazy reflections on the glass walls and the chrome trees”.
The two chrome tree sculptures centre stage add their reflections to this modern hall of mirrors.
