Designed by architects Jakob + MacFarlane, the future world headquarters of euronews will be an audacious and modern building with a strong identity, reflecting the values of the channel. The international news channel will be located on the docks of the Saône river, in the heart of the Lyon Confluence district, the largest urban redevelopment project in Europe. The building will be completed in the last quarter of 2013. It will then take six months to finish the interior layout and technical installations so that the channel can begin operations at the new site in 2014.

With approximately 10,000 square metres of space on 6 levels, the building will accommodate the 800 current staff of the international news channel. The two spherical voids on the facade and the perforated outer shell of bright green aluminium are just a few of the technical feats of the building whose interior is designed to meet the needs of a television channel broadcasting live worldwide, 24 hours a day.
