The first of three buildings to be designed by David Chipperfield Architects – part of a new mixed-use quarter in Lyon’s Confluence district being coordinated by the practice – is now complete. The office building is prominently located on the river front and is designed for flexibility and a potential future conversion into apartments, ensuring its long-term sustainability. Balconies run along the two principal façades, facing the river and a newly created garden respectively. These are articulated by in-situ concrete columns that stand proud of a recessed timber façade.
