L'Avant-Seine jette l'ancre !

Mairie d'Epinay-sur-Seine


May 20, 2015 – It was under the warm golden light of a spring early evening that the Belle Spinassienne officially made known. An ideal time to enjoy the reflections of sunlight on water and their interactions with the woody structure and reflective walls of the building.

The Mayor of Epinay, the project leaders, elected officials and the stakeholders involved in this unique river adventure met to enjoy together the end result of more than a year and a half of work. For the occasion, Gérard Ronzatti, the project architect, gave a tour of the building, reminding those present the main characteristics of the floating architecture’s facility.

Sole building o the Epinay’s riverbanks and fully open on the river and its picturesque surroundings, this new gateway into the city endorse the role of riverbanks’ facilitator throughout the year.
