Case study

Vauban 27 Lille

Former Partenord Habitat headquarters becomes new hub for IESEG management school

On the corner of one of the busiest boulevards in Lille, IESEG will apply its new teaching methods in an environment that is at once dynamic, respectful and open to the city.

The eleven existing levels (including three in cellars) will be enhanced by a new treatment of the corner, by amphitheatres in the heart of the block and by a monumental staircase.  The densification of the site will be compensated by a plant treatment on all floors of the project. All spaces will be designed to activate exchanges between students, a promise of creativity and innovation.
