Hangar Y – Paris Meudon - Façade, Paris
History is the DNA of Hangar Y! Built in 1879, it housed the world’s first airship factory. Named after the military plot of land ‘Y’ on which the building was constructed, it was one of the cradles of French aeronautics until the end of the First World War.

It then became the Musée de l’Air et de l’Espace until the museum was moved to Le Bourget in 1973. The place was then used for various purposes (notably as a film studio) but was unfortunately left abandoned for a long time before renovation started in 2018.

The ‘Culture et Patrimoine’ group, headed by entrepreneur and patron Frédéric Jousset, was the driving force behind the project and launched this historic monument on an outstanding renovation programme to create an utterly delightful cultural and event venue.

Hangar Y – Paris Meudon - Leebul, Paris
Situated close to the forest of Meudon, to the south-west of Paris, Hangar Y lies in the heart of a 10-hectare park designed by Le Nôtre and listed as a ‘National Estate’.

The place is spread over 3 major areas - the hangar, the park, and the ‘undergrowth’. The renovation project was designed to preserve the natural environment and the history of the site.

Emblematic of the industrial architecture of the late 19th century: an iron structure, exposed bricks, a glass roof that floods the interior with natural light, and curved, symmetrical lines, Hangar Y is also striking for its exceptional size (70 m long, 41 m wide and a 26 m high nave).
