The TALM-Angers campus comprises five buildings with very different architectural characteristics and is located in the heart of Angers city centre between rue Bressigny and the Jardin d’Ollone. With a total floor space of 9,000 m², the school is able to offer students their own personal workspace and ten workshop facilities.
The Hôtel d’Ollone building, also known as La Boulaye, dates from the 18th century. It is divided into two architectural parts: the château and the half-moon. The château houses the school’s admin offices on the ground floor and the facility staff on the second floor. The school’s 150 m² exhibition room, Salle Thézé, is on the first floor. The half-moon building is home to the general store and the printing, multimedia and film photography centres. This building is also used for amateur lessons in sketching, drawing and painting.
The Château d’Eau
The Château d’Eau, which means water tower in English, is also known as La Tour. It houses the library, etching and lithography workshops, and first-year student workshops.
The Park Workshop
The park workshop, built at the end of the eighties and refurbished in 2020, enjoys a leafy location in the Jardin d’Ollone. It houses the modelling and ceramics centre and the metalwork centre, and student workshops.
The Giffard building lies between the Jardin d’Ollone and rue Paul Bert. Formerly a distillery owned by a local family of the same name, the premises are now used for screen printing on the ground floor and student workshops on the first floor.
At number 75 rue Bressigny, Kerviller is used for the Textile Techniques workshops taken by Art and Design students. It also hosts children’s plastic arts lessons (ages 9 to 14) and amateur modelling lessons for adults.
