The Louvre Post Office is an iconic building in the 1st Arrondissement, in the heart of Paris, a building forming part of the La Poste group’s property portfolio.
The project, which was awarded to the architect Dominique Perrault, transforms this industrial site into an urban block by opening up the building to the city, while revealing the rich architectural heritage of the building, which was designed in the 19th century by the architect Julien Guadet.
The purpose of the project is really to keep postal activities in the heart of Paris. It aims also to enhance the spatial qualities of this building with a mixed-use program, including new services for the area.
Effisus Ecofacade P-Fix and Effisus Pre-Fab TrueSeal were integrated at this project. Effisus Ecofacade P-Fix is a solution with clip-in gaskets for waterproofing facade connections. It is being applied on site to improve the buildings’ envelope efficiency and sustainability. Effisus Pre-Fab TrueSeal is a pre-fabricated bespoke sealing solution, developed specifically for sealing complex details in accordance to specific project details and requirements.
