The building required an architectural revival justified by the evolution of office uses as well as the energetic standards.
The idea of total flexibility was pursued throughout the uniform grid patterning of the facade paneling into 1.35m modules corresponding of the suspended ceilings, and through the electrical and technical “irrigation” of the offices by means of raised floors and suspended ceilings.
The building’s new image forms both out of restraint regarding the economy of means and the taking into account of the client’s expressed wishes and needs. Our proposition highlights generosity of space, light, comfort, and wellbeing. Today more than ever businesses are sensitive to the image their facades present to the world, as well as to the amount of comfort they can provide their employees.
