Text description provided by the architects. The world of work

Work has changed nowadays in the tertiary sector. We have gone from a very hierarchical style in the 80s, to teamwork, from a vertical organisation to a more transversal one. Today, work is performed in a more autonomous way. The employee favours a more individual initiative, by creating its own network. Each assignment leads him to imagine new and different connections. What we believe is the most important aspect of this work organisation are the links and crossings between different workers. The work is the fruit of relationships between partners united around a common goal. In architecture, this results in layouts such as patios, circulation spaces with windows to the outside, many places that allow to gather and meet. These places, by providing a physical and social comfort to the worker, allow him even better to project himself into the virtual network.

Adapting spaces to the function

Through the programme of white offices, we identified different needs that match various uses: the need of meeting rooms, of a certain number of partitioned offices, and of course, open spaces and service blocks. To each of these spaces are assigned characteristics: circulations become transversal spaces creating meetings - it is a street in the building that is open to the outside and serves different elements of the programme and patios; technical blocks do not need daylight and therefore, take place in dark hearts; work places are distinguished but keep a high degree of modularity; work cells are integrated in the circumference of the building, thus benefiting from natural light; and meeting rooms become counterparts of outdoor patios.
