LA MACHE TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL Lyon (France) - 2023
Contexte & enjeux
Founded in 1920 by Father La Mache, the La Mache vocational high school benefits from a site of more than 17,000 m² located in the heart of Lyon, which has developed over time and is now continuing its transformation.
With the project for a new building, the school intends to consolidate its image and values, reflect its history and project itself into the future.
This building is the new showcase of the school, giving it a visibility that was previously too confidential from the public space: on the Boulevard Jean XXIII, a clearly marked, traced and generously glazed base accompanies the pedestrian towards the new main entrance of the site.
The upper levels offer a more classical architecture, however, animated by a play of recessed volumes and terraces offering a beautiful plant presence on the street.
The use of brick, glass, metal and wood in the facade accompanies the mix of sheltered functions.
Technical school and higher education: administrative premises, showroom, classrooms and Advanced Technical Certificate laboratories, 29 shared accommodation units, event space, landscaping of the yard
