In this, the practices first project in France, several historic buildings will be merged by a new monolithic extension, glazed with thin layers of Portuguese white marble and glass façade. A new technology developed in collaboration with glass manufacturer Saint Gobain

The renovated museum will be open to the public in 2016 and will be known upon completion as the Musée d’Art de Nantes.
