Accoya balcony brings light to Paris museum



Accoya has been used to construct a balcony within the recently renovated Musée de l’Homme – Museum of Man – located in the heart of Paris. The museum’s 3.5m high Balcony of Sciences was constructed using a series of curved uncoated Accoya slats which sit horizontally to form a natural barrier.

Housed within the Passy wing of the Palais de Chariot, the museum’s interior underwent a significant transformation starting in 2009. The architects returned the original spirit of the Pavillion de tête Davioud by restoring its original glass roof.

The space was first designed by renowned 19th century architect Gabriel Davioud as a vast atrium, was split into two distinct floors in 1937, effectively doubling the exhibition space.
