Text description provided by the architects. Ekimetrics has implanted its new headquarters on the Champs Elysees. Located the same floor of a clas- sic Haussman building, the new location is a com- bination of ancient pageantry loaded with historical significance on the Champs Elysees side, along with a more traditional compartmentalized offices on the Rue Balzac section.

The challenge of the project was to find this hetero- geneous 1000m2 space, carrying an image that is both consistent and corresponding to the identity of Ekimetrics : mathematical in its expertise in market- ing (media, big data ... ) as well as young, dynamic and artistic.

At the back end, on both sides of the patio, 2 large open spaces host a large number of workstations. Yet, in order to maintain some privacy, the open spaces are connected and/or punctuated by various more informal areas such as informal conference rooms: Eki.Cube as well as convivial/social spaces: Eki.Table and Eki.Truck.

On the front end, in a more protected environment, some of the larger offices are found. Within this sec- tion, other lighter constructions have been embed- ded such as the Eki.Gallery and Eki.Cabin to pro- vide zones of exchange and of support of the arts.

Materials like cement for the floors coupled with raw wood and batipin for the lighter constructions were deliberately chosen to contrast with the origi- nal setting while not distorting it.

Eki.Truck: A place of conviviality and relaxation. The kitchen is placed on a platform and behind it hides the facade of a food truck in real scale. Informal meetings are improvised during the day over a cup of coffee on the high table.
