In fact, the extremely short implementation time recorded in the program, the wooden prefabrication structure was privileged and presented to the client, as a means of optimizing the construction period (7 months).  Other factors contributed in this choice: conducting a clean site on a busy site, marking a rupture with the concrete architecture of the existing building (workshops), promoting clearer public spaces, consolidate the functions of the new ensemble.
