ARaymond's new head office building and the urban redevelopment of the historic heritage site in the heart of the city.

ARaymond, a world leader in fastening and assembly solutions, commissioned Patriarche to design its new head office on a historic site in the heart of Grenoble.

Formerly the location of the group's factory, the site has been redeveloped to accommodate a main building, the Arch, and a possible extension.

This project also made it possible to refurbish two mansions, the Villa Albert and the Villa Achille, both of which are intended for other activities in spaces that include meeting rooms and a museum.

The building is clean and contemporary in its architecture. Built on a paved-over, raised platform, it dialogues with the rest of the site and the city.

Inside, open, flexible, bright, and warmly designed spaces ensure the users' well-being.
