LYON-SUD HOSPITAL CAR PARK Saint-Genis-Laval (France) - 2023

General presentation

Contexte & enjeux

Designed on the Vallon des Hôpitaux site, at the south-western entrance to the Métropole du Grand Lyon area, the project fits in harmoniously with the existing hospital buildings and is part of a large-scale urban project being carried out by the Greater Lyon metropolitan area and the Hospices Civils de Lyon.

With 550 spaces over 7 levels, this new silo car park is part of the transformation of the area, including the forthcoming arrival of a new metro station linking the district to the centre of Lyon in 15 minutes.

The building’s metal frame is solar-powered, and it also stands out for its rational use of wood bastings on the façade and its 67% recycled steel structure.
Partial greening of the façades and roof will limit the phenomenon of urban heat islands. On the roof, photovoltaic panels will provide a 90 kWp self-consumption power plant, and water recovery will be used to water and maintain the building during operation.
