CALQ proposes a metamorphosis of part of the interior and exterior spaces of the Le Jade office building in Saint-Denis.
The central atrium, which unfolds in a spectacular volume, is both the reception hall and the heart of the vertical and horizontal distribution of the offices. Our team of interior architects has completely redesigned it to reduce its cathedral-like appearance and to give it the more pleasant scale of a real convivial space. Bathed in natural light thanks to a new glass roof and entirely glazed façades, this atrium now houses two levels structured by wooden steps: the reception area on the ground floor and a café area on the first floor, thus creating a new place for users and visitors to share and work. Some of the existing materials have been retained, such as the black granite paving, and the addition of wood brings a sense of warmth and softness to this large space. A sculptural chandelier, The Cloud, cradled by the air, infuses this atrium with a poetry inspired by Japanese culture.
Underneath these tiers, a new volume has allowed the creation of a modern and comfortable auditorium with 130 seats, accessible directly from the ground floor. The colours of the furniture were chosen in a gradation of greens and greys, in harmony with the existing tones in the building.
A large part of the office space and common areas have also been renovated to improve their comfort.
The gardens have been redesigned in terms of pathways and planting, and a ground-level bicycle shelter and summer shelters have been integrated. Part of the technical terraces is now planted and accessible.
