Institut Laue-Langevin, Grenoble


This is our competition-winning visitor centre for the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble, France, designed in collaboration with local practice TKMT. The new building will comprise a medical suite, teaching space, research facilities and café for the Institute, which is one of the world’s leading centres for neutron science and technology.

Inspired by the movement of particle reactions, the building features a lenticular façade with a combination of transparent and opaque glazing. Angled roof finishes reference the mountainous landscape.
