Transco – the big rooms

The big rooms, which presumably served as warehouse space at ground level of the Transco, were each painted in a different colour and are featured separately below.

Les grandes pièces, qui ont probablement servi d’espace d’entreposage au rez-de-chaussée de la Transco, étaient peintes chacune d’une couleur différente et sont présentées séparément dans la galerie-photo ci-dessous.

the green room / pièce verte

The green room lacked windows and was therefore in the near complete darkness until the demolition team made holes in the ceiling to let light in when they arrived in February 2016. Before they did, graffers and other visitors would have to cross the room in the dark when passing from the blue to the yellow rooms. The only pieces visible on this room’s walls at the time (if they had a flashlight) were the Nock and Pacer ones shown in the gallery below. The rest of the material in this room was done after light was let in, with the exception of a few pieces done in a small adjoining room which had windows and was therefore always brightly lit.

La pièce verte n’avait pas de fenêtre et se trouvait conséquemment dans la quasi-obscurité jusqu’à l’arrivée en février 2016 des équipes de démolition qui ont créé des ouvertures dans le toit pour y laisser entrer la lumière. Avant leur arrivée, les graffeurs et autres visiteurs passant de la pièce bleue à la pièce jaune devaient traverser cette pièce verte dans l’obscurité presque totale. Les seules oeuvres visibles (s’ils avaient une lampe de poche) étaient celles de Nock et Pacer présentées dans la galerie ci-dessous. Les autres oeuvres ont été créées après l’ouverture du toit, à l’exception de quelques unes se trouvant dans une petite pièce attenante avec fenêtres, donc toujours très éclairée.

the piano room

This room, which featured very little graffiti, was particularly loved by urbex photographers because of the unexpected presence of an old piano.

the machinery room

This was a large room, but most of it was rather dark and offered very little wall space good enough for graffiti. Some of material shown below was actually found inside small adjoining rooms.

Cette pièce était plutôt grande mais peu lumineuse et n’offrait que très peu d’espace intéressant pour y faire du graffiti. Certaines des oeuvres montrées dans cette section ont en fait été trouvées dans de petites pièces attenantes.
