ESPCI Paris, University of Montagne Sainte-Geneviève

8 January 2024

We are proud to present the ESPCI Paris – PSL project, where our team was chosen for the rehabilitation and expansion of the École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles, an internationally renowned research center, and a fertile ground of innovation for the industry, in the #university of Montagne Sainte-Geneviève.

Here, the transformation of the architectural vision unfolds behind the backdrop of scaffolding and precision #engineering.

As you step onto the premises, you can see the special bronze color of the cladding filled with artistic endeavor and detailed #craftsmanship in the heart of #Paris.

The particularity of this site are the chien-assis who redefine the Parisienne architecture with a new way to express windows on the zinc roof. These chien-assis let in more light than the traditional windows based on two factors: tilted roof and the #height of the windows.

Students will soon be able to experience these spaces, and the building will serve the community in all its #beauty.

Architect: Architectures Anne Démians.
Client: ESPCI Paris – PSL.
Owner Rep: EPAURIF (Etablissement Public d’Aménagement Universitaire de la Région Ile-De-France).
