Located in Boulogne-Billancourt (Hauts-de-Seine department), facing the Seine and exposed to high visibility opposite the Issy-les-Moulineaux bridge, the QUAI OUEST building, built in the early 1990s, no longer met today's tertiary sector standards.
The developer envisaged restructuring the building to adapt it to office standards and new environmental standards and to give it a new architectural identity.
CALQ's site management team contributed its expertise to this major renovation, with a particularly elaborate façade.
The façade system is a ventilated double skin of glass inside which the solar protection is positioned. The façade was designed as a kaleidoscope with diagonally folded glass panels, creating two triangles separated by a sharp edge, the first reflecting the sky, the second the street traffic.
The office floors of approximately 1,700 sqm. are spread over 8 levels of superstructure, with 80% benefit from daylight, and have a flexible layout. A 480-seat company restaurant, a 120-seat cafeteria that can serve 600 meals a day, meeting rooms for 240 people and a concierge service are also available to employees. All the outdoor areas have been planted to increase user comfort and contribute to biodiversity.
QUAI OUEST also has 332 underground parking spaces on 5 levels.
