Furnishing Contract Award: the “Roof Pop” wins in the “Hybrid Project” category!


In the French Space Planning Project Contest at the French Furnishing Awards, the Roof Pop terrace,  based on a partnership between emlyon business school and Banque Populaire Auvergne Rhône Alpes, won First Prize in the “Hybrid Project” category.


Workplace, relaxation space and event venue: the jury highlighted the quality of the work done by the industrial company  Fermob, which equipped the different areas “in some cases with its cozy sofas and coffee tables and in others, with restaurant-style tables and chairs, meeting the technical requirements of the outdoor space, in a very contemporary style”.

The objective of the  Contract Awards 2018 is to reward especially exemplary designs of indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Like Silex, a new space of emlyon business school in Lyon’s Part-Dieu district, the Roof Pop in Ecully was designed by architect Arthur Gential to facilitate new ways of working, pedagogical innovation and cooperation arrangements between schools, their students and professors and companies.
