About us

Recup’s mission is to Recover, Revive and Repeat. Recover materials and urban spaces, revive and transform these and repeat this process in order to increase our impact on a sustainable world.

 

Recup Paris is based at Fort d’Aubervilliers, an old disused military fortress just outside Paris. Here we have renovated two old bunkers that we use as our atelier and as a multi-use event space. We organise activities and provide these spaces for a wide variety of purposes including art expositions, photo and video shoots, music performances, private parties and dinners as well as for workshops and team-building events. In cooperation with the site-owner Grand Paris Amenagement, we also offer the use other parts of the site, including the two large hangars.

 

Together with partners we are transforming  more spaces at this inspiring site and for it to become a hub for creativity, culture and sustainability. For the people of Aubervilliers, Paris and beyond.

 

We also offer a variety of services including those related to event management and animation, fundraising, art and artist promotion, building and interior design, energy, sustainability and circular economy. Through our own expertise as well as through our network. We also make and sell art and crafts.
