JDs builds the Youth Centre in LilleJDS Architects has won a competition to design a youth centre for Lille. This will be the first project in Lille by JDS Architects.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 (housing a youth hostel, a kindergarten and offices) they offer 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. The lifting of the mass of the programme at the corners illuminates and activates the adjacent public spaces and creates a continuity from outside to inside of the building.
