The idea behind this project was to create a building that would house diversified functions (offices / technical centre / logistics / showroom), be flexible and able to change over time, playing the role of a tool for communication. All while integrating the complex topography of the site.
The architecture of the building was imagined with this need for adaptable design in mind. It allows the content of the building to be adjusted to current needs, without jeopardising its image each time. The setup of the showroom, the metallic skin of the façades, the sliding strata are all malleable principles that constitute the fundamentals of the architectural expression of this centre: a location with a strong personality that will leave its mark on the site and in the minds of visitors.
Patriarche is in charge of two buildings : the research building ( building number 3)and a building for the «EPCS» headquarter.
From the showroom staging to themetal skin of the facades, the architecture is malleable and scalable in order to meet the various functions of the building.
