Located near Versailles, the HEC Paris campus stretches over a 130 hectares Park. The Viltain parcel has completed the campus with a 300 meter long landscaped facade created along the departmental road 446.
This extension now offers the image of a park that shows a series of landscaped structures, ranging from groves to gardens.
The lighting of the extension has allowed to secure the major paths and tag the secondary rides during the first part of the night. Pedestrian traffic was lit using luminous columns to stake out space and guide students by creating light markers visible from far away.
The paths on the edge of site and inside the wood have been treated using luminous beacons with direct lighting, fixed on photovoltaic self-powered wooden masts.
The lighting of the car parks located on the edge of the site is activated via presence detection cells, installed at the level of access.
Tennis courts and football fields are given dedicated lightings, piloted on demand depending on the sporting uses.
Following this development, the client entrusted CONCEPTO for the study of a Lighting Master Plan for the whole campus, in order to control through time the lighting and the night image of the future areas to be redeveloped.
