Novancia Business School

This project consists in restructuring and extending a business school for 1,555 students. It includes a complex comprising three amphitheatres, a 300-seat auditorium, a film set, food and beverage areas and offices

The institution asserts its modern features while interacting with the 1908 building, whose characteristics are entirely kept. Thanks to its smoothness and its dynamics, the extension seems to be constantly moving and thus presents some sort of contrast with the static rough brick used for the original building. It shows a purified outline and glass façades made up of vertical coloured shutters. Their position can be changed according to each season: either they let sunbeams in or they prevent them from entering the building.
