Saguez & Partners built the new Manufacture Design headquarters in the Docks of Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine, a new eco-district in Grand Paris, to think and work differently. Here, the agency’s 150 collaborators imagine and create the design of tomorrow.

Design Factory

In the heart of the Docks de Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine, Saguez & Partners constructed its new nearly 5000m2 Manufacture Design headquarters in the former Alstom factory, originally built in 1922. Covering a third of the surface in the country’s 93rd Department, the new eco-district, Grand Paris, provides unique and interactive experiences. The firm works, reflects, observes and imagines new ways for city living: new neighborhoods, transportation options, lifestyles and new uses and attitudes regarding sustainable development.
