Rout Lëns is an extension of the centre of Esch-sur-Alzette. One of its goals is to strengthen the links with the town.
The Allée de la Culture Industrielle, which provides the structure for the whole project, is the iconic avenue for this new cornerstone of the Luxembourg landscape. Fully pedestrianised, it connects the site’s industrial heritage buildings to one another. It thus glorifies what is left of the past, offering them to inhabitants and visitors in the form of welcoming, multipurpose spaces.
The new neighbourhood is designed to connect to its immediate environment, whether built or natural. It is an extension of what is already there. The tree-lined paths wind between the buildings, symbolising the deep connections that bind them together. Playing with light and shade, they offer residents sheltered routes to stroll along and encourage soft mobility.
