Located in Lyon La Part-Dieu, the first business district in Southeastern France, M LYON represents a new generation of French development, responding to a wide variety of uses, offering retail, office, and residential space.
The strength of M LYON is how it enables each category of users to benefit from the entire project’s level of excellence, comfort, and organization and have access to all services.
Designed by KPF with the support of local architect Soho Atlas in Fine, the project reinterprets the strong architectural and historical signature of the Part-Dieu District while incorporating contemporary markers to achieve “smart building” status. A large central atrium allows office occupants to benefit from optimum natural light, while also giving the project a sense of unity despite its large dimensions.
Designed to be sober in its energy needs, the building is positioned to exceed regulatory expectations for environmental performance, integrating the latest technological innovations. The M LYON envelope, for example, provides a minimum of 30% comfort opening. At the upper levels of the tower, the L-shaped residential block is surrounded by balconies. These terraces feature controlled vegetation beds, and users can overlook the green roof that is accessible from the amenities level.
