Text description provided by the architects. The project of the Nurses training Institute (IFSI) is located on the Saint-Dizier Hospital Center site. The massing of this university building is simple, rational and sequential, there are 2 levels combining 2 volumes. The first one, on the ground floor, is clad with perforated panels for shading. The forecourt is protected by an awning made of the floor cantilever. Inside, the entry lock opens on the vast crossing hall, developed as an interior street under the glass roof.

With signage and furniture, this bright space is a convivial and living space between the poles. Rough concrete materiality is enhanced by walls great height opening on the first floor and the sky, and by the lighting effect. Space organisation around the interior street creates informal meeting spaces while being fluid and functional. The different rooms, classrooms, tutorial rooms, offices, library, students room, etc., benefit from natural light and clear views.

Glazing treatment protects from glare and offers soft light. The building orientation provides free solar gains and energy performance strengthened by reinforced concrete building system. This thermal comfort is completed by a green roof. The building is a qualitative and attractive tool for the students and the teaching and administrative staff and enables them to work and learn in the best environment.
