The project is covering 3 floors, the architectural approach adapting itself to the specific usages of each floor.

On basement floor, replacing what was previously a simple cellar, one can find the common spaces for employees: a yoga room, a big meeting room, and a space to chill around a kitchen, a ‘petanque’ ground, a space for nap… Walls, floor and lightings have been designed to emphasize a raw and softened atmosphere and to create contrast with upper floors.

On ground floor, open to public on Rue de Paradis, the old and outdated real estate agency has been replaced by the brand new ‘House of Crowdfunding’. In a bright and large space with high ceilings, a wooden structure is defining the space around. This multi-purpose structure includes a meeting room, a bar corner and a modular front side that can be adapted to host the different products born thanks to KissKissBankBank.

All around, on the walls, KissKissBankBank’s main data and recent projects are displayed in a fun and visual way. Open on the street, this space is welcoming various usages: conferences, workshops, new project creation…

At the back of the ground floor courtyard and on 2nd floor sit the offices and ‘living rooms’ for KissKissBankBank’s employees. The link between the different spaces is created by a wooden wall roaming along the corridors and creating different spaces such as meeting rooms or phone booths in its convolutions. On another part of his wall, known as the ‘Hedgehog’, wooden sticks are welcoming individual boxes of employees when time comes to leave the office with clean desks.

To reflect the innovative, dynamic and creative culture of KissKissBankBank, most of the furniture has been designed on purpose. While adapting itself to the different usages of each floor thanks to tailor-made seatings, tables, storage boxes  or recreation areas, the design remains consistent thanks to the use of 3 main materials: Batipin, tainted Medium and felt pieces.

The building has been inaugurated on November 17th with the attendance of many guests including Fleur Pellerin, former minister of digital innovation and is hosting the leading edge of crowdfunding innovation since then..
