The construction of an Olympic and Paralympic Village provides the opportunity to develop a new metropolitan district that will serve as an example for the north of the Paris region. 2024 is a crucial date to meet the expectations of Parisians, but also those of athletes from all over the world to reveal the exemplary qualities of a rich and dynamic living environment centring around the Seine riverscape.

The village will be made up of 13 buildings on a single platform, ranging from 6 to 9 storeys high. The complex was created by a grouping of six architecture firms, headed by UapS - Anne-Mie Depuydt and also comprising Pascal Gontier, ECDM, Post Office, NP2F and Brenac & Gonzalez.

The project will be delivered in two phases:

  • The Games phase, when the project will be the Olympic village hosting 15,600 sportspeople and their travelling companions in summer 2024 (from June to September 2024);
  • The legacy phase, when the village will be converted, at the expense of the Olympic Games Organising Committee, into a new district for 6,000 residents and creating the same number of jobs.

The village will comprise 407 housing units, 3000 m² of sports, culture and food facilities, 130 m² of retail space and 9,300 m² of office space.

Egis will be responsible for the general coordination of the operation and for acoustics engineering (through Acoustb, an Egis entity).
