SUD architects is delighted to announce the start of work on the future →Burgundy School of Business (BSB) campus in Lyon's 8th arrondissement.
Designed for Carré d'Or, the 8,200 m² project is largely open to the city and blends into the historic industrial context of the district through its massing and architectural vocabulary.
It has been designed according to the principles of modularity and adaptability in order to create a unique third place made up of open areas that can be used to create hybrid workspaces adapted to the practices of its future users.
A new showcase for the campus, the project offers large double-height spaces overlooking the street. It is made up of three blocks connected by glazed walkways offering views of both the city and the heart of the block. Each block comprises two volumes, one in stained concrete, the other in timber frame and metal cladding.
The roof, in the form of sheds, is in dialogue with the existing industrial buildings of the JST factories, and allows for the installation of photovoltaic panels.
The site has been revegetated, and the project retains the existing trees that punctuate the campus street.
Designed using the Carrément Hexagonal© approach, the future campus is aiming for E3C1 certification and BREEAM Excellent certification.
2,500 students are expected to study there from September 2025!

Congratulations to the whole team!
