Grimshaw Architects has been appointed to design two stations on a new branch of the Paris Metro

The practice will work on plans for Marie d’Aubervilliers and Fort d’Aubervilliers stations on the new Line 15, which is aimed at taking pressure off central Paris trains.

Grimshaw’s appointment was announced as part of a package of awards for station design on the 75km line, with Bjarke Ingel’s BIG Architecture also appointed to work with Paris firm Silvio d’Ascia Architecture on the ‘emblematic’ Pont-de-Bondy station.

Philippe Yvin, chief executive of project sponsor, the Société du Grand Paris, said: ‘All lines have now entered phase project management and all 68 stations are being designed.’

Line 15 is intended to be a high-capacity underground rail route, enabling travel between the suburbs of Hauts-de-Seine, Val-de-Marne and Seine-Saint-Denis.

Project funding of €3.5 billion was approved by the Supervisory Board of Greater Paris in November 2015.

When completed in 2030, the line is expected to carry between 340,000 and 470,000 passengers.

The full list of practices working on Line 15:

  • Bordas + Peiro: Stade de France 
  • Grimshaw Architects: Marie d’Aubervilliers and Fort d’Aubervilliers 
  • Brenac & Gonzalez Atelier d’Architecture: Bobigny and Bobigny Pablo-Picasso
  • SCAPE-Offscape: Bondy
  • Vezzoni & Associates: Rosny Bois Perrier
  • Explorations Architecture: Val de Fontenay and Le Perreux-Nogent
  • BIG and Silvio d’Ascia: Pont-de-Bondy
