City Light
A campus dedicated to innovation, fostering collaborative work, interactions and a sense of community.

The City Light building is a veritable beacon in the heart of Lyon's “Chemical Valley". The project aims to transform the site into a welcoming campus of innovation and a global centre that will foster collaborative intelligence at all stages in the production process.
 
A showcase for the brand, City Light's facade allows Solvay to be recognised from the outside and conveys the company's values through a dynamic and contemporary design.
 
Designed as a continuous wave and in relation to nature and the landscape the building's form provides all workstations with an unobstructed view of the outdoor park and lets in lots of natural
light.
