A frugal design
With its location in the new eco-district the Docks, the Regional Council headquarters displays an exemplary approach toward the environment, accessibility and the diversity of uses. Making rigorous choices about acoustics, light, flooring, the flow and partitioning of the floorplan, the frugal construction and design are in service of the building’s uses.
Services for all
A concierge desk, an auditorium, a spacious gym with views of Paris, a gaming center, bicycle parking, a documentation area, 24 connected tea break areas, 4 restaurants: Le Sous Bois (seats 230), Le Café Seine (seats 230), Le Pop Café, open all day (seats 105), L’Ex Libris (seats 50)…
An optimistic design
A semi-open concept design means wide-open interior views that also bring in the outdoors, city views and natural light. The main idea was to create easily recognizable and easy to appropriate spaces, using graphics of a city in construction and an area on the move to enliven and punctuate various areas. The new work environment for the agents and officials of the region is quirky, fresh and bold.
The links that bind
The workplace should encourage both formal and informal exchanges between colleagues and arouse the collective intelligence of the group to better work together. In the offices of tomorrow, a 21st century administration is revolutionizing the workplace.
