The quality of the site, both symbolic and architectural, leads us to propose a building organized around an interior garden ; while preserving the site unity.
Whe make the most of the authorized outline to propose a building with a simple construction principle and rational organization, while maintaining the garden’s qualities. All the laboratories and offices are turned to the garden thanks to the gallery distribution system under the hull south facade (it allows on one hand an optimal control of the temperature, and secondly, the precise frame on the surrounding urban elements).

Special care was taken in light environment: all circulations are naturally lit and offering outside views.Using materials such as zinc, concrete granite, glass or aluminum ensure a controlled integration on this strong character site, organizing by contrast the specific areas of the program on the site.
