Research centre of the Urbalad Campus, Michelin, Cebazat

The project participates in the overall modernization of Michelin's Industrial Research and Development center, following the orthogonal grid that governs the site and marking the entrance in a powerful way. It connects the two sides of the test circuit that divided the site in two until then and imparts a smooth flow to the complex. Identical rectangular structures are dynamically paired and arranged along a wide interior street in a way that offers great functional flexibility. A huge horizontal surface that functions at once as a glass roof and a solar canopy punctuated by photovoltaic panels brings the fragmented structures together to form a single building and contributes to controlling climate and to the strategy of low energy consumption.
