Pierre de Geyter Square - Lille

In the city at night, just like at home

As a tool for creating atmosphere in cities, the Abahjur is part of the urban redevelopment project in Fives, a district in Lille, France. Industrialisation in the 19th century made Fives the “factory” of Lille, and for almost 2 centuries, the district of Fives spun, wove, forged, assembled and manufactured.
As a result of the urban renewal project, a new square, the Pierre de Geyter Square, was created in the heart of Fives. The objective is to create a real urban centre around the local town hall while retaining a population very attached to its neighbourhood.
By selecting the Abahjur, the landscape architect and city authorities sought to transpose the atmosphere of interior architecture outside.
