Text description provided by the architects. Located in the Laval science and technology park, the Servier “Centre of Excellence” project consisted of the design and construction of a new, independent office building which was followed by a complete retrofit of the adjacent older head office complex.

A main objective of the project was the reorganization of departments and the integration of equivalent work spaces for all staff, in both size and quality of finishing. The project was also designed to achieve high energy economies and an environmental sensibility to achieve LEED NC (without documentary burden).

Building accommodations include open office areas, meeting/discussion bubbles, divisible conference spaces, hospitality areas, coffee and break zones, high-density archives, a small fitness center, mechanical penthouse and underground storage rooms.

The personality of the new building reflects and contrasts with the vocabulary of the nearby more stylistic head office with its mansard roofs. Rhythm and materials were carefully selected and inspiration drawn from the original palette of colours.

This project was followed by the complete refurbishment of 2,183 m² of the existing older head office building spaces to reflect the newly introduced spatial allocations and high quality finishing.
