The Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Luxembourgeois (CFL) has launched a call for applications for the design and construction of the new CFL headquarters. Together with UNStudio , our architect office developed and presented the project called “Les Jardins de la Gare”.
Our human approach promotes the connectivity of employees, citizens and tourists. The project included, among other things, an accessible green roof, as well as the creation of an interior courtyard.
The existing building is enlarged by an extension along the rails, with offices on the floors, openings on the ground floor and a green roof. The space on the roof of the old building is provided for solar panels.
The connection with the level of the rails is ensured by an elevator. The red awnings, inspired by the roof of the existing building, unify the two volumes and function as a connecting thread.
