Paris St. Germain training center construction update Image: PSG

The Paris Saint-Germain Training Center is located in a striking hilly area just outside Paris, in the heart of a remarkable, naturally landscaped setting. Set to become an emblematic site for international training, it embodies the club’s values – team spirit and striving for excellence – with modern and ambitious architecture and a carefully-considered layout courtesy of Wilmotte & Associés.

The Paris Saint-Germain Football Club, commonly referred to as Paris Saint-Germain, PSG, Paris or Paris SG, is a professional football club based in Paris, France. They compete in Ligue 1, the top division of French football.

The Parc des Princes is an all-seater football stadium in Paris, France, in the South-West of the French capital, inside the 16th arrondissement, near the 20,000-capacity Stade Jean-Bouin and the 15,000-capacity Stade Roland Garros. The stadium, with a seating capacity of 47,929 spectators, has been the home of Paris Saint-Germain since 1974.

The Paris Saint-Germain Training Center, sometimes referred to as Campus PSG, located in Poissy, Paris Region (France), will be the new training ground and sports complex of Paris Saint-Germain Football Club.

The development, which is earmarked for the Poissy commune on the outskirts of Paris, was first scheduled for completion in 2021, subject to environmental approvals requested in January 2018. PSG were eventually given the green light after a public enquiry was held between February 18th and March 29th, 2019. The club aims to open the facility in the Summer of 2022.
 

Set on different plateaux

The ‘PSG’ stated that taking advantage of the natural slope of the land was a key element in the project’s design. The site is split into three different levels or plateaux, linked together by buildings, to follow the 30m incline. The plateaux will be organized in such a way that they represent the upward path of a top-level athlete. The plateau reserved for Paris Saint-Germain’s professional footballers will be at the site’s highest point.
 

Elegant and functional design

The Paris Saint-Germain Training Center’s buildings are designed to be elegant, understated and functional, in order to fulfill the requirements of the athletes and staff. Light-filled and comfortable, they are designed to encourage communication between the different teams and disciplines.
 

Respecting the site’s landscape identity

The ‘PSG’ further stated that large expanses of greenery will prevail – buildings will cover less than 10 percent of the site’s total surface area – helping the center to blend into the surrounding landscape. Inspired by the site’s plants and rural setting, the facilities will create visual perspectives that tie in with the omnipresent natural background. Preserving this identity was one of the main aims of the architectural project undertaken by the Wilmotte & Associés agency.
