Text description provided by the architects. 13, rue d’Uzès : behind the impressing 19th century industrial front elevation, at the back of a courtyard covered by a glass ceiling made by Eiffel workshop, the brand new head office of Talent.IO pops up from the 3rd floor thanks to the lightened brand name appearing behind floor to ceiling windows.

The architectural concept chosen for this rehabilitation was to find back the original beauty of the building that has been masked and altered by successive works for a century and a half. Demolitions, cleaning, scouring pickling have revealed a wooden floor, original Eiffel-style walls and structure, freeing this big floor with a generous volume: high ceilings, 500 sq.meters without walls.

In order to respect the raw industrial spirit of the place, technical networks have been left apparent on purpose, and lights are industrial tubular devices. The paintings are purposely remaining incomplete to create a contrast and highlight zones that have been left raw.

Closed rooms have been placed at the end of the open floor to let the central space as open as possible. Floor to ceiling industrial windows let the natural light enter the closed spaces.

Alike every Vincent & Gloria project, the architectural approach is expressed from end-to-end and a specific focus is made on choosing and designing furniture. Raw, industrial materials have been chosen, often with a different usage than the initial one.

Attention paid on details and the superposition of several wooden materials (Finadiamant, industrial floor, Batipin) are creating a customizable, welcoming space full of character. With their organic design, the office tables are allowing developers to change their position according to their mood and teamwork: face to face, alongside or alternate.

Batipin and Fermacell (cement panel traditionally used for tightness) has been used for the furniture of common spaces: kitchen, bar and eating room. The ‘Talent.IO’ neon light highlights and differentiates this space from the rest of the open floor.

Along the courtyard front elevation, work and rest space thanks to contrasted and filtered lights, a long multipurpose furniture has been designed in Batipin. The long bar table is combined with 2 cocoon seats covered by acoustic material for phone calls or simply rest.
