Cité Administrative of Lille

The Cité Administrative matches the challenges of the state and the challenges of the city of Lille, the metropolis and more generally of our cities today, by introducing a fair balance between built surface and nature, by imagining a project conceived for its users and local residents, in which the landscape is an essential structural point. The nature implanted in the project reunites the city with its larger landscape, creates openings and defines an administrative campus of today. Our project articulates the urban linear by creating comb buildings through which the multiple gardens punctuate the built-landscape along the Boulevard de Strasbourg. This principle conditions the smooth integration of the Cité into the city and participates in the evolution of the image of tertiary equipment which becomes more domestic, more urban, more human.
