An ambitious extension and refurbishment project for the «Passerelle» community and cultural centre, located in the historic steel mill town of Florange in eastern France. The project includes the doubling of the existing 500-seat performance hall to a 1000 seat capacity, the extension and refurbishment of the existing social and community centres, and the design of a new esplanade and exterior green spaces. A new perforated, backlit galvanized steel façade would wrap the ensemble in a single unifying gesture.
