Boasting a very light and beautiful steel structure, the industrial shed was built in 1902 .
The renovation included the design of a new insulated roof with ventilating louvers and a new concrete floor with a serpentine heating system underneath.
The remainder of the building was restored and conserved philologically, attesting to the layers of interventions and also to over a century of industrial production.
