The purpose of this façade restoration was to bring natural light back in to this unique work by Paul Auscher, architect of the Félix-Potin establishments. The renovations also highlight the Hennnebique structure from the 1910s. The flow from the building to the street was restored by creating a more open ground floor and lobby.
Inside, workspaces were made more functional, with landings offering brighter service spaces, set an open courtyard.
The refurbishment of the lavatories, higher in numbers and better spread out between men and women, allows everyone to work in each of the seven offi ce areas. The envelope and occultations are revisited to improve energy performance and successfully meet the E.H.Q. labels Excellent and BBC. Renovation.
Finally, balconies are reclaimed and provide a great display for the beautiful Paris sky.
The shell and the occultations are rework to improve their performance and reach the H.Q.E. Excellent and B.B.C. Renovation.
