JDS: nominated for Architizer A+ Awards
JDS architecture office is nominated for Architizer A+ Awards, in the Commercial - Mixed Use category, for its project ABC Lille.
The Maison Stéphane Hessel project formerly known as the ABC Lille emerges from the idea of creating an urban catalyst, designed to accommodate the three ages of mankind, from birth, through adolescence, and intoadulthood.
Over the past twenty years Lille has become a European hub; a destination for business and congress, a great place to study but also a tourist destination. The project emerges from the idea of creating an urban catalyst, accommodating three distinct programmes on a triangular site. By placing a program in each point of the triangle it offers maximum privacy while allowing them a closeness and continuity of space, organized around a garden, like a cloister of calm in the center of the city. This newly built group accommodation Lille Euralille is based in an iconic, futuristic and sustainable building.
