Design: be baumschlager eberle

Location: Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg

After a five-year construction period the Maison du Savoir has now been officially opened by Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg and Luc Dhamen, director of Le Fonds Belval.

La Maison du Savoir

The „Maison du Savoir” is the new communications and administration centre of the University of Luxembourg in Esch-sur-Alzette. Following on their success at an international competition, be baumschlager eberle together with their local partner Christian Bauer & Associés have designed and built a landmark university building which symbolises the transformation of a former steel production site into a modern educational complex. The 50,000 square metre structure accommodates lecture halls, seminar and faculty rooms as well as administrative offices and catering facilities.
