Hôtel de la Marine

Hôtel de la Marine is a historic building which was built between 1757 and 1774 by the royal architect Ange-Jacques Gabriel on Place de la Concorde in Paris.

The building was originally housing the royal Garde-Mobile, the administration of royal furnishing, together with a library, a chapel, and apartments.

Following the French Revolution in 1789 Hôtel de la Marine became headquarters of the Ministry of the French Navy until an extensive renovation project was initiated in 2015.


The FlexStep stairlift is designed to function both as an ordinary staircase and as a wheelchair lift. Developed and manufactured by Liftup, the FlexStep is flexible and equally useful for pedestrians and wheelchair users alike. FlexStep is an innovative 2-in-1 solution and saves space compared to installing both a flight of stairs and a separate lift.
