The Maison de la Radio is currently being renovated and is undergoing work until 2023.
4,000 m² of circulation space runs through the building: a modern style in the most recently renovated spaces and a 50-70s style corresponding to the period when the Maison de la Radio was inaugurated.
The Maison de la Radio was inaugurated on December 14th 1963 by Mr Charles de Gaulle, President of the French Republic, in the presence of André Malraux, Minister of State for Cultural Affairs.
The house was successively the headquarters of the Radiodiffusion-télévision française (RTF) from December 1963 to 27 June 1964, then of the Office de radiodiffusion télévision française until December 31st 1974. It then houses the management, services, radio studios as well as some auditoriums often used as television studios.
When the ORTF broke up on January 1st 1975, it was assigned to Radio France and took the name "Maison de Radio France".
In 2005, a rehabilitation project was undertaken for the entire Maison de Radio France with the firms "Architecture-studio" as prime contractor, "Changement à vue" for the scenography and "Nagata Acoustics" and "Lamoureux" for the acoustics. In addition to bringing the entire building up to fire safety standards and removing asbestos, it was decided to take advantage of the construction site to build a new 1,400-seat symphony concert hall with organ, an underground car park and to replace the existing surface car park with gardens.
