SLA designs all the urban spaces for Lille’s new ‘State Administration City’ where 18 state departments will gather in five new buildings. Here, city nature and buildings are designed to complement each other, creating an inspiring and stimulating work environment centered on well-being, health and collaboration.

Located on the green belt surrounding Lille, the future State Administration Campus dialogues with the city. Like a bastion of biodiversity, our project will strengthen and develop the natural environment by re-establishing links with the local green and black ecological networks. Over 3,000 new trees and six local habitats are covering the 10,000 m² of green urban spaces, ecological corridors, green and brown terraces.
