Renovation and conversion of the ticket hall – Restoration of frescoes


This remarkable gallery is lined with the historical fresco Paris-Menton entirely restored. The new lighting project accompanies the intentions of the architect of the monuments historical, it restores at night, without any visual nuisance, the quality of the place completely renovated. The lights installed in the ceilings of the commercial hulls reveal by lighting indirect the ceiling of the gallery with a soft and uniform light. Installed discreetly behind the structure of the building, the projectors equipped with quality optics and a source with high color rendering, illuminate the fresco as well as the two paintings access to Hall No. 1. Without distorting the quality of the atmospheres of the gallery, the luminaires are controlled by the GTC of the station, so that the intensity of the artificial light adapts to the contribution natural light, thus saving energy.
