Menighetti, an AREP subsidiary, carried out the programming studies for Cité des Arts, a centre aimed at hosting and sharing performing and visual arts creations. The studies determined the major elements of this new amenity designed by Atelier Architectes & Ingénieurs.

This ex-brownfield land located on the fringes of the city centre had already seen the former factory transform into a cultural site, but the actual project provides the population of Reunion Island with an artists’ incubator. Its multiple, versatile and inviting spaces reflect both the diversity of functions and the desire to open up the arts’ centre not only to the whole island but also to mainland France and to international events in order to break the cultural isolation of the region.
