Redesign of Institut de Formation des Professionnels de la Santé
Montpelier-based architectural practice, NBJ Architectes, has redesigned the Institut de Formation des Professionnels de la Santé project. Completed in 2012, the project is an interior renovation of an existing building and sought to establish a coherent whole operation by adapting the programme to the needs and uses of new users.
Located in Avignon, France the interior design project is essentially a reorganisation of interior spaces, limiting interventions on buildings and ensuring optimisation of quality and comfort of use. The general principles of circulation of the old building are maintained and adapted to the standards required by the change of destination.
According to the architects: “To provide a spatial quality and attractiveness to the central atrium, the ‘hanging boxes’ are deposited along the passageways in level one and level two. They are spaces of conviviality and collaboration between students, teachers, and administration. The staggered views offers a real centrality to what was previously a simple empty. These entities are involved in both the formation of identity and its new usability.
“The building takes place on the site ‘Agroparc Avignon’, near the university and student services, including the university restaurant. The building is involved in the operation is an office building in level three previously occupied by services of the regional directorate of France Telecom.
“The renovation project intends to give an overall consistency in building operation by adapting the program to the needs and uses of new users.”
