This project is a 22.000 sqm office building which sits on an existing site of tertiary activities, in a district located along the RN20 road in the Integrated Development Zone (ZAC), and entirely being transformed.
The challenge of the project is to build an office building, a public plaza and an underground parking garage on top of an existing developed site.
The architectural concept starts with the desire to create a cloud, i.e., a protective and semi-transparent envelop revealing empty and full volumes, which happen to be loggias, terraces and offices.
Another predominant idea is to create a link between the RN20 road and the public plaza. A pedestrian walkway, bordered by a series of shops at ground floor, crosses the building, thus tying together the road and the plaza. The center of the plaza has been drawn as a large patio with direct access to the parking garage.
