Offices / Paris / 2018


The Enjoy office building is located in the eco-district Clichy-Batignolles in Paris and forms part of the infrastructure covering the tracks of the French railway company SNCF, at the start of the main north-south route and close to the Martin Luther King Park. The building is inserted into this intricate urban context with an open structure over the tracks and solid facing the street. The resulting building consists of three wings with different orientations, one towards the Eiffel Tower, one towards the Montmartre hill and the third towards the RPBW Paris Courthouse. This three-way orientation allows great flexibility of use over time, as the three wings can belong to one, two or three different users. Each wing has a large urban window framing the view of the city and a double-height space for users. Between the south and west wings, there is a green courtyard that creates a continuation of the park into the interior of the building and offers a view of the railway tracks and the Eiffel Tower. The façade features a rigorous structural pattern with a regular rhythm of solid and voids, which is broken up by volumes jutting out over the urban space. These projections create a façade movement that dissociates the large volume and creates the true identity of the building. Enjoy is a wooden structure that is capable of producing more energy than it consumes.
