Already maintaining a deep connection to fashion, Studio Milou updates The Carreau du Temple, set to become the centre of Paris’s new fashion district

Scheduled to reopen in April, the redesigned Carreau du Temple will function as a sports and cultural facility. Paris-based architectural firm Studio Milou, which specialises in the restoration of historic structures, has updated the building with modern acoustic and insulation standards.

The project was a professional challenge for the lead architect Jean-François Milou, who says 'a technical demonstration that Baltard's Halles could have been perfectly maintained.' The interior features mobile partitions and retractable stands which will allow it to function for a variety of events, from trade shows to performances.

The Carreau du Temple will also be the centre of Paris's new fashion district, set to become a lively area during fashion weeks. The iconic building already has a deep connection with fashion, from the time when the Order of Malta's privileges provided merchants with a platform to sell jewellery and Indian print cotton not allowed anywhere else in the country, to more recent catwalk presentations from the likes of Galliano and Dior Homme.
