Nantes, 14 October – Tour of the Salle à Tracer (Mould Loft)
Guided tours of our architecture agency, an industrial heritage building converted into committed offices (registration mandatory, limited number of places).
In 1920, the Dubigeon shipyards in Bas Chantenay saw the completion of the Salle à Tracer, an emblematic site of Nantes’ shipbuilding industry. Until 1970, here were drawn the templates for boat and submarine hulls on a huge wooden floor that is today classified.
Since 2017, the Salle à Tracer is enjoying a second life. The AIA Life Designers agency has taken up the challenge of converting and inhabiting the premises. Completely refurbished, it is no longer boats drawn here but buildings.
