When bioclimatic architecture is combined with decarbonized renovation

In the heart of the 12th borough of Paris, adjacent to the Sorbonne Nouvelle, the former headquarters of the National Forestry Office (ONF) established in 1976 is undergoing a transformation. A heritage to preserve and enhance, this iconic building in the neighborhood is being revitalized by Maud Caubet Architects. This project, named Racine, interacts with the existing elements and presents a new landmark in the area.


The building retains its distinctive appearance with a preserved and enhanced façade. Its basement is transformed into a courtyard. The roof, on the other hand, will be entirely redesigned, crowned with a greenhouse-like structure, resembling a suspended winter garden reaching towards the sky.
