With nearly 34,000m² of new highly efficient office space, the So Ouest building is part of a strong sustainable development achieving both HQE and THPE certification. Particularly efficient in terms of running costs and energy consumption, it can accommodate over 2,500 people in the most professional and comfortable working conditions. Each floor plate is approx. 1,600m² fully adaptable to meet the needs of most organizations.
The walls between offices are glazed with «smart» glazing called PRIVA-LITE, which can turn from clear to opaque and back again at the flick of a switch. This privacy function is achievable without significant alteration to light transmission, and also offers an ideal screen for projectors when opaque.
Unibail-Rodamco, owner of the 22 storey building, chose Clestra Hauserman of its mock-up floors after putting the emphasis on flexibility and design of the spaces. The bright and transparent circulation areas are installed with flush glazed pleinAir and Synops partitions, the latter one hour fire rated to meet the requirements of the customer. The glass panels are decorated with floral custom-made manifestation, making the workspaces more elegant and lively.
In the more informal and reception areas, Saguez & Partners has created a design utilising sheets illuminated with multicoloured LEDs. This design has been incorporated by Clestra Hauserman into pleinAir partitionpanels to create a warm and colourful atmosphere.
