The challenge of this project was to reposition a complex of four Haussmann-era buildings to anticipate future needs and make it relevant long-term, while reconciling the requirements of its landlord, SFL, with the needs of its tenant, WeWork.
To boost the site’s visibility, transparency and coherence, STUDIOS designed a new contemporary facade with double-height glass panels.
STUDIOS’ expertise in the user experience proved vital in revealing the site’s potential. The agency’s teams revamped the reception lobby, opening it up to create a feeling of porosity with the surrounding neighborhood and let natural light in.
The ground floor was revamped to connect the lobby to a large double-height atrium with a glass ceiling and second-floor mezzanine level made accessible thanks to the creation of a new staircase.
Surpass existing constraints to fulfill the requirements of a co-working site within a global structural renovation
Upon signature of a lease by WeWork during the design phase, STUDIOS integrated the specific requirements of co-working spaces by significantly increasing capacity without detracting from the coherence of the site as a whole. This optimization required modifications to technical and security infrastructure, including the creation of five staircases that were designed around numerous shops located on the ground floor.
