This office project is positioned facing the motorway and is oriented in the perspective of Paris. This strategic position gives the project extraordinary visibility. The intention is to announce the entire development of the ZAC Campus Grand Parc, by creating a strong signal in the territory.

The building, which revolves around an island of freshness, develops like a trapezoidal ribbon interrupted by a fault and two porches. It is made up of a continuous base surmounted by three emergences. These crystals adorned with volcanic stone, address the wider landscape and contribute to the central theme of the project: biophilia.

The ground floor accommodates places of well-being and relaxation. They participate in the activation of a landscaped pedestrian path that irrigates the project.The halls pass through, in order to create visual and physical porosities with the heart of the island.

The history and especially the geology of our site make it suitable for pioneer species such as Scots pine. It is in this central vegetated space that the office community meets, talks, rests and creates links. The garden becomes the daily theater for working and living together.

While keeping its characteristic of a continuous island, the project enhances the dynamic aspect given by the combination of low, urban and high templates. In this small campus, the concepts of mobility and biophilia fit perfectly into all floors of the project. They provide the occupants with optimal working conditions for their comfort and well-being, 15 minutes from the center of Paris.
