Local architecture firm AP Valletta has been commissioned to design the new Lift Tower for the Hôpital Avicenne in Paris.
The project involves the construction of a new extension to provide lifts for one of the buildings of the Avicienne Hospital, located in Bobigny, Seine-Saint-Denis, in the northern suburbs of Paris.
According to AP Valletta’s website, the Hôpital Avicenne was “opened in 1935 as the Franco-Muslim Hospital… to cater for North-African immigrants who had flocked to the Paris area. It was renamed Avicenne in 1978, in memory of the Persian physician Avicenna, it is now a university hospital catering for the local population. The hospital campus area is 9 hectares, and consists of multiple buildings, with internal roads and green areas. The buildings were built over the years, as the hospital expended.”
The lift extension will be located in an existing courtyard, in a corner of the building. The project will be developed in collaboration with our local partner Bruno Michel from Bureau D’Architecture.
