The new building aims to create, instead of an amphitheater, a signal building which marks the entrance of the UFR-LLSH on Boulevard Lavoisier and significantly renews its image. The transparency of the new facades lets you see,from the public space, the internal organization of the building. It is about opening up the university to the city and vice versa. The teaching rooms and co-working space have been located on the ground floor, juxtaposing the entrance hall and the atrium. They are easily identifiable and accessible from the entrance of the building.
The interior fittings are treated in a sober and refined manner. The raw materials are highlighted: wood, metal, glass. It is not only a question of defending a minimalist aesthetic that expresses the materiality of the construction as closely as possible, but also of proposing robust, lasting arrangements that bear the patina of time.
