Wilmotte & Associés - Release in bookstores: From the halle Freyssinet to Station F

This book tells the story of a rebirth, the one of the halle Freyssinet into the world's biggest startup campus, Station F!


In 1929, Eugène Freyssinet built for the messageries d'Orléans an exceptional building, the longest building built in Paris, able to house within it whole trains of goods. A huge and innovative building that uses state-of-the-art construction techniques.
In 2017, this shed is coming back to life to host the world's biggest startup campus: Station F. It was therefore necessary to completely rethink the building to adapt to its new functions while respecting the spirit of its design. A rehabilitation - led by Jean-Michel Wilmotte - that uses the most innovative techniques, a regeneration that links history and modernity, heritage and new technologies. This book is the story of this transformation.

Wilmotte & Associés - The ArcelorMittal group entrusts W&A with the realization of its headquarters in Luxembourg-city

2017.12.13 - ArcelorMittal and the “Fonds d’Urbanisation et d’Aménagement du Plateau de Kirchberg” (“the Fonds Kirchberg”) have announced today the results of the consultation launched in early 2017 to build ArcelorMittal's new headquarters in Luxembourg-city. Three architectural practices were still in the running: Foster + Partners, Rem Koolhaas OMA and Wilmotte & Associés. The practice wilmotte & Associés, along with its British branch Wilmotte Uk, will finally have the honor to sign the architecture of the new iconic building of the group!

The W&A teams have designed a largely glazed and compact building with a metal steel frame, developing around a lush garden and a central atrium over the entire height of the building, covered with a glass roof. The project is inspired by the shape and volume of iron ore that can be found in the red lands of southern Luxembourg.

“What I personally love is that this building visibly features steel, which is so often hidden from view.  In fact, we believe that no other building of this size and scale has been designed specifically to feature steel throughout. Wilmotte & Associés have developed a truly innovative design that shows how beautiful steel is.”  Aditya Mittal.
