The Nantes Saint-Nazaire Higher School of Fine Arts
by Franklin Azzi Architecture

Located on the Île de Nantes, the Alstom warehouses renovation project marks a new step in city-making.

Through this project, Franklin Azzi Architecture's mission was to improve both the urban planning of the whole old Alstom warehouses area and the architectural design of the Higher School of Fine Arts. The school building is concerned with history, urban integration, the adaptability of the building to the service of the user and combining these human notions with technical necessities.  The renovation demonstrates the metamorphosis of an architecture in its time.
