VALODE & PISTRE WINS THE GARE DU NORD TRANSFORMATION PROJECT
On July 9, 2018, SNCF Mobilités announced its decision to enter into an exclusive negotiation with a consortium led by CEETRUS to support SNCF Gares & Connexions in the major transformation project of Gare du Nord in Paris. Valode & Pistre is the architect of this exceptional project.
« La Gare du Nord » is not only a magnificent Parisian monument, but also an integral transport hub in the city. It is currently Europe’s busiest station welcoming 700 000 passengers per day, with 800 000 expected by 2024.
The ambition of this project is to transform the station into an urban complex, making it a new reference for the 21st century.The project is an opportunity to reinvent the overall design of the station and enhance its relationship with the city. Areas of consideration include the separation of flows between departures and arrivals as well as the redevelopment of the fundamental areas to accommodate the new services and activities.
