With the restoration of the façade, the point is to bring back the exposure of this singular work by Paul Auscher, architect of the Félix-Potin establishments, and to highlight the Hennebique structure of the 1910s. The link between the building and the street is restored thanks to a more open ground floor and hall.
Inside, workspaces were made more functional, with landings offering brighter service spaces, set around an opened up 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 office 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.
