A dedicated campus project
Student residence, business incubator, eco-constructed building… In 2025, Isart should have its exclusive campus in Nice, on the boulevard Simone-Veil.
The project: a building with deliberately avant-garde architecture for a school that intends to house up to 1,000 students. An ambition that would have been one of the factors in the success of the establishment on the Côte d’Azur. “When we wanted to build a strong school, it was a turning point”trust the director who finally wants “help create businesses, business models, through video games and the creation of intellectual property”.
