Museum Luma Arles

Located in the Camargue (France), LUMA Arles is an artistic and cultural complex created by the LUMA Foundation in the Parc des Ateliers.

The LUMA Foundation was founded in Switzerland in 2004 by Mrs Maja Hoffmann, a Swiss art collector, patron and documentary filmmaker, to support artists and their projects. The Foundation focuses on projects in the fields of ecology, human rights, education and culture.

The challenge

The construction of LUMA Arles will begin in April 2014. This building in the Parc des Ateliers, designed by architect Frank Gehry, is clad in 10,752 stainless steel blocks and has 10 floors, all different. The doors installed in specific locations must meet fire, burglary and bullet resistance criteria, while an installation, with poured frame on a metal structure, with technical compliance, must be respected.

More than 20 doors

The Heinen solution

Our team helped to define the requirements and provide technical support to the general contractor. The doors were all supplied to measure, combining burglar-proof, fire-resistant and bullet-proof performance. The experience and know-how of our partners made it possible to validate a specific installation method for the site.
