First a religious site, converted into a military and scientific site during the French Revolution, and which is now entering a third phase, university and scientific. The site has been classified since 1982.

The site
The site is first of all a historical evidence: by welcoming students and researchers, this former novitiate will rediscover its original vocation for study.
But also a real estate evidence: this 14,000 square meter complex, which includes three courtyards and several buildings, adjoins 13, rue de l'Université, a building already occupied by Sciences Po. The two places together will form a unique site of 22,000 square meters in total.

Restructuration of the Artillery site and creation of the future Sciences Po campus.

Distribution of spaces
• Areas for interdisciplinarity, collaboration and exchange;
• Innovation and experimentation spaces, located in the heart of the campus;
• Individual and more targeted workspaces, distributed on the different floors, in order to
optimize the working conditions while ensuring a direct connection with the heart of the campus.
Thus, each space is in direct relationship with the neighboring garden. The entire campus is articulated around four gardens.

Environmental approach
New buildings will obtain double BREEAM and HQE certification with “Excellent” levels. Resilient and durable, this site is also so by its sobriety in the consumption of resources. Thanks to old buildings with significant energy assets, ventilated by its interior courtyards, the campus will not need energy-consuming air conditioning.

The newly created circulation scheme is easy to read and brings clear access for students, researchers, administrative staff, etc.
The internal circulation artery: the fluidity is reinforced by the creation of a real artery for interior circulation and new axes of communication. High and clear, this new artery unites the different buildings, simplifies the traffic, and creates new spaces that match the program; it sets a comfortable continuity between historic buildings, courtyards, green spaces and vegetable gardens.
In addition, the project gathers vertical circulation mainly in the corner sections, taking full advantage of historical distribution arrangements. The majestic stairs are valued to stand in the heart of the distribution system.

The courts

The Gribeauval courtyard: the beating heart of the new university
Being the beating heart of the project, the Gribeauval courtyard brings together some of the essential places of the University (cafeteria, library, start-up spaces), forming a coherent whole in which the boundaries between inside and outside are deliberately diffused: the "Learning Garden".

Cour Sébastopole: history and serenity
Garden: contemporary and respectful of the historic cloister, the design of Sevastopol's garden relies on the original layout and modernize it, in order to strengthen the power of the place and its principles of elevation, contemplation and reflection. The individual offices and shared spaces reserved for researchers are organized around this place.
Building: particularly demanding, the restoration of the cloister is based on 1819's plans. It will preserve the hole in the cloister and highlights the buildings built by the Dominicans, whose sublime vaults regain their original appearance.

The Treuil de Beaulieu courtyard
The Treuil de Beaulieu courtyard is transformed into a garden and hosts the journalism school at the foot of the patio.
Open to all users of the site, the garden has a large deck along the north gable wall, slightly raised from the central garden with a view on the entire garden.
In addition, this garden of innovation guarantees good harmony with the residents who would benefit from the view and the calm of this garden.
