The new “Hôtel de Ville de Montpellier” presents textile architecture in a new dimension.

The town hall in Montpellier, France was designed by renowned award-winning architects Jean Nouvel and Francois Fontès.

Also involved were the two artists Yann Kersale and Alain Fleischer, who designed the photographic works, which are now imposingly admired on the ceilings of the entrance hall, the conference room and the council chamber.

The motifs were printed digitally and in large format on high-quality textiles for stretch ceilings from PONGS® and then assembled using the innovative DESCOR® system.

Thanks to the sound-absorbing properties of the DESCOR® PREMIUM Acoustic, loud ambient noises are absorbed in the large, open halls, which noticeably improves the surround sound.

With the new city hall, Montpellier enters another dimension, worthy of the 8th city of France.

The building stands out architecturally.

It is ecological in its design and economical in its operation.
It is the emblem of a modern administration and a quality public service. Its location in the heart of Port Marianne is part of the urban project, established for the next 30 years. It occupies a prominent place, in the center of a sector in full development, towards the east and the sea.

The logic of this new centrality?
