The design of the custom-built IHU facilities reflects project objectives, with an emphasis on collaboration and flexibility, thanks to the close proximity of the support space and the laboratories.
Liryc gathers on a single platform all the laboratories, imaging equipment and modeling teams. It was essential to allow developments and subsequent reconfiguration of the building, and thus have a real tool perfectly adapted to evoluting research projects in the Institute.
The architects have proposed a project of 3 distinct entities both from a structural and spatial point of view to respond best to this concept of scalability essential to research teams:
- A host entity, education, government developing on two levels;
- A strictly tertiary entity for researchers developing on four levels;
- A technical entity composed of imaging and lab developing on two levels with a set of oversize so local techniques to consider any type of use.
A physical link between the building of PTIB (Technology Platform Biomedical Innovation), where our researchers were based since 2011, was designed to allow the IHU to ensure a strong proximity between research teams favoring exchanges and communication.
This building was designed by "D.A architectes", who have already designed other projects in the field of research, health and teaching. They used their proven expertise to create an optimal collaborative space. This firm worked in partnership with the representative group LEON GROSSE builders and the project management was entrusted to Bordeaux University Hospital.
