architectural design

The building of the house of associations is conceived as a “building site” in response to a complex program and in order to favor a diversity and a freedom of uses.
Three floors of 50 m of length and 14 m of wide are arranged along the street. On each floor a different constructive mode responds to the various requirements : open spaces for the reception and co-working areas and the café, with large outdoor connections ; modular-walls for meeting rooms along a large foyer on the first floor ; prefabricated wood construction for offices and small meeting rooms on the terrace of the last level.
Located across a new urban development in the fringe of the city center, the architecture is like an urban showcase.
