The B2 plot participates in the transformation of La Plaine Saint Denis: a territory that has already for a long time reinforced the urbanising drive for the North-East of Paris. The large office schemes can no longer only constitute compounds detached from the territories in which they are placed; rather, they must take root locally.
The shape of the project is unprecedented: an ‘open’ disposition characterised by vast open landscaped spaces, which break any massive or continuous frontality. It creates transitions, turns itself towards the city and contemplates its transformation.
The vast building settles in the site with delicacy, defining a plethora of free spaces. The landscape is extrovert, it fully characterises the project where architecture and landscape become entangled. This results in a dual advantage, significant quality for the users and the necessary components for an urban dialogue.
The construction of a project of this magnitude must allow for the introduction of agility. Thus, the construction and management principles are deeply orientated around the flexibility of spaces, to facilitate the adaptation of what will arise tomorrow.
Offices with company restaurant, a business centre, fitness centre, VIP restaurants and commercial units.
