First project in Paris!

AP wins the competition to design a new lift tower in Paris.

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 building of the Avicienne Hospital, located in Bobigny, Seine-Saint-Denis, in the northern suburbs of Paris.

Opened in 1935 as the Franco-Muslim Hospital, the hospital was built 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.
