HEC Student Housing

Refind and renew.
Located on the edge of the Saclay Plateau and the Bièvre Valley, the HEC campus has a privile-ged location. The 138-hectare park features prestigious sports facilities, a vast forest area and a plateau inhabited by buildings from 1962 and designed by the architect René Coulon. Martin Duplantier first delivered the MBA building with David Chipperfield in 2012, on the edge of the forest, opposite the farm fields on the Saclay plateau.
By renovating and densifying the residential park, the office worked on the heart of the cam-pus and its modernist DNA: buildings on stilts, oriented east-west, floating in the trees and free from any vis-à-vis.
The new housing revisits these founding ingredients while giving them a new modernity.
The project presents a heritage approach with an innovative vision of the campus.
