how a former hospital site becomes home to housing and services as part of a new urban district


At Liège, the Bavière site – which gets its name from the former hospital – refers to the place known as the ‘Bavière triangle’, located less than 1.5 km from the city centre. This triangle is the subject of an overall redevelopment project being undertaken by the public authorities (the city of Liège, the province of Liège) along with a private company (Bavière Développement SA).

This redevelopment (*), to the interior of a pedestrian block, is structured around three zones (F-G, A-C and D-E) located at the corners of the triangle and of a central complex constituted by the ‘Pôle des Savoirs’ (Knowledge Hub) of the Province (B) and the sports centre (C). The  programme developed by Assar Architects exclusively involves the urban planning of lot D (within the D-E zone) and including the construction of 155 apartments and of a creche.
