On May 2016, 18th, for the 11th time, the Beaulieu Foundation has had the pleasure of inviting the residents living near the site. The Secretary general, as the host, presented the new Beaulieu 2020 project, that combines commercial and architectural renewal. The Press has been informed of the same developments a few hours before. Commercial renewal will be due in part to the diversification of the partners on the site. Some of them were present, such as the Béjart Ballet Lausanne and the Institut et Haute Ecole de la Santé La Source.
Another facet of the promised renewal is the integral renovation of the Beaulieu Palace up to 2020. As first people affected by works on site, the Beaulieu neighbours were introduced to the architectural project by the Architects Bureau Richter & Dahl Rochat Associés SA, and to the work organisation, par the Qualis Society, in charge of the works for the Beaulieu Foundation. Lastly, AS-Communication, the Agency responsible for the communication, explained the means to inform and stay in touch with the residents.
As usual, the evening ended in a very friendly way around a toast.
