Gif-sur-Yvette

2009-2012

Within the protected landscape of the Vallée de Chevreuse, this showcase building is an expression of outward-looking research. Highly sustainable, its compact architecture uses the sloping site to minimise its footprint.

The principle of organising the building in levels and projecting volumes creates a play of serving and serviced spaces.  The project optimises technical solutions and flexibility, and promotes a more human working environment.
