Located in the Carré Sénart urban development zone, a key site for regional tertiary sector development, on the banks of the Canal du Fil d’Eau and bordered by a plantation of lime trees, this project is characterised by a comb type structure which includes offices, a school of engineering and a hall of residence with 312 bedrooms. From an architectural point of view, the orthogonal layout on the ground as well as the building's positioning and the colours and materials used in the cladding on the façades really allow the project to blend in with its surroundings. The simple sliding volumes create a dynamic overall impression. This complex has applied the BREEAM rating "Good" by respecting environmental procedures, focussing on the quality and impact of building materials and the use of integrated eco-systems since conception, as well energy efficiency.
