REUNION - PARIS - MAURICE
L’ATELIER exporte aujourd’hui son savoir-faire. Notre expertise en architecture bioclimatique et notre démarche éco-responsable nous ont permis de développer plusieurs projets à l’étranger (Myanmar, Maurice, Mayotte, Tanzanie, Qatar…).
Leading this restoration was of particular importance to L’Atelier Architectes. This is because L’église de la Délivrance is one of the most beautiful epitome of the neo-gothic architecture built in the colonial 19th century, because the original setting and furniture of the building have in most part been preserved, and because this church made of basalt, standing on a plateau above the Saint-Denis river, is a strong landmark of the capital of Reunion Island, but also because the church is near the premises of the L’Atelier Architectes headquarters in the historic quarters of Petite-Ile in Saint-Denis on Réunion Island. From this close proximity has begun a 15-year adventure, inclusive of preliminary studies. The restoration of the building was made in two phases. The construction site has first of all touched on the exterior facades and the roof, including waterproofing and reparation. Window protection and the 28 statues that embellish the façade were also restored. However, the most visible damage was in the interior of the edifice, in terms of painted decorations and coatings. Ranked as a historical monument, the church has received a lot of attention and has required from artisans, high precision work to reproduce the former sheen of the interior decorations.
