Ministry of Culture, France
Located in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, where the price per m2 reaches record levels, the Ministry of Culture wanted to equip all of its premises with metal library shelving.
The Ministery of Culture is in charge of national museums and monuments; promoting and protecting the arts in France and abroad and managing the national archives and regional culture centres.
All together 12 archive rooms and 7 floors of the building are equipped with library shelving. Sysco® static shelving as well as Compactus® library shelving is installed to meet all the requirements. A great amount of fitting work was carried out in the reading rooms: cornices, plinths, housing for door posts, aluminium ramp, granite floor, charcoal colour. All of these details contribute to a very aesthetically pleasing final installation.
