Tectoniques is the winner of the consultation for the complete requalification of the high-rise building Boivin-Loubet in Saint-Etienne.
The high-rise building Boivin-Loubet, built in 1971, is located west of the city centre in the oldest district of Saint-Etienne, the cradle of the city marked by the proximity of the mining site. The architects from Saint-Etienne, J.Farat, Y.Gouyon and J.Bressiant designed a rational and functional facility to meet the administrative program of the primary health insurance fund and the family allowance fund.
The building has remained to this day the most imposing and tallest building in the city centre.
It possesses architectural qualities from which a real contemporary transformation can be made.
The recomposition involves both a complete reprogramming, a transformation of the base and associated public spaces and the creation of a new architectural signature.
The project hosts a complex programme including the city and metropolitan archives, the scientific unit of the Mine Museums, the film library, the associations Memorial of the Resistance and History and Heritage.
