MEDIPOLE LYON Lyon (France) - 2018

General presentation

Contexte & enjeux

A unique formula, the Medipôle clinic superimposes the activities of 7 health establishments in the Lyon region on 7 levels. Three large houses set on a base formed by the technical platform house the accommodation. The architecture reflects the image of the Maison Hospital in line with the future of the post-industrial “bon coin” district of Villeurbanne.

An avant-garde building, the façades of the “Maisonnées” are made of insulated prefabricated concrete panels that ensure the durability and thermal protection of the project.
The grouping of activities makes it possible to provide a complete range of care on a single site.

The programme combines the requirements of two project owners.
