The culmination of a 12-year renovation campaign of the Cultural Centre, the Connexion Project has come to an end with a newly remodeled Foyer and a new educative space, L’Atelier, which have been be unveiled on 17 May 2021.

Special thanks to the French Institute Trust, the Patron’s Circle and the generous donors for their support to the project.

The Foyer


The Institut français has reopened its doors boasting a newly revamped Foyer enhancing the visitor’s experience.

At the crossroad From the very access to the building to the comfy Ciné Lumière seats, from the friendly Café Tangerine to the library rooms, the visitor’s journey has been improved, while new signage and screens better display the information.

Open to all Thanks to the addition of a second lift leading to the lower ground floor, where the second screen Ciné Lumière II is located, public spaces are now 100% accessible to all.

A place where innovation meets heritage The magnificent Art Deco features are highlighted, with new designer furniture adding a stylish touch to the space, and special lighting and acoustic treatment contribute to creating a pleasant atmosphere.
