The new campus of ENSTA Paris Tech, which invested the location of Palaiseau, perfectly merges into the geometry of the structuring axes of the “Ecole Polytechnique”. In the heart of the area, it provides a new identity to the landscape..
The school, which is the main building of ENSTA ParisTech campus, lands along the boulevard surrounded by a vast redesigned space with lawns and trees. The exterior conviviality space, which is naturally blended into the rolling design of the park, provides plenty of space for social interaction.

A large atrium distributes all the school’s activities with hallways that reflect interactions and exchange of this community. Its generous dimensions allow to receive all students and to hold important events. The school‘s desire for excellence is expressed through an overall innovative structure with transparent footbridges and corridors, with vegetal facades, covered by climbing plants along stainless steel cables, which reduce summer solar transmission thanks to a natural screen, and by concrete panel facades, which create a timeless atmosphere.

Moreover, it operates an innovative heating technique, based on the use of low temperature heating generated by the largest field of geothermal probe realized in France, which reduces greatly the amount of primary energy consumption.
