Inspire, an innovative wood-frame building

Located in the Bellini Arago sector, the Inspire building is part of a rapidly changing sector. The seven-storey timber-framed building will offer 22,323 sq.m. of office space, divided into 2,600 sq.m. floors, and will provide its occupants with 1,500 sq.m. of green rooftop space and 600 sq.m. of accessible terraces.

The building's surroundings will offer a beautiful 340 m² open space, which will notably allow for the planting of some thirty trees.

With its crown shape, Inspire will have a monumental atrium at its heart. Architect Anthony Béchu wanted to give the building a majestic entrance and a double-height hall designed to be the nerve centre of the building: a place to meet and socialise.

On the ground floor of the building, but independent of its operation, a fitness centre and a brasserie will complete the service offer.

In terms of infrastructure, the building has a mezzanine and two basement levels housing a delivery area, 235 car parking spaces, dedicated parking for electric cars, 120 motorbike spaces and a 338 m² room for bicycles.

A controlled carbon footprint

Inspire aims to have a low carbon impact. The building's framework is made of wood, a material from eco-managed forests whose thermal, hygrometric and acoustic properties are well proven.

The building is aiming for triple environmental certification: HQE Bâtiments Durables, BREEAM and OSMOZ, a certification focused on the living environment. In parallel, two labels are also targeted: the E+C- label with an E2C1 level and the BBC Effinergie label.

A world designed around conviviality

The building will be able to accommodate up to 1,8000 employees. The offices are also designed to encourage flex-office and will offer green spaces for employees, wide staircases with landings for informal exchanges, and a duplex company restaurant. The building's lobby will be equipped with a snack bar and a Juice bar. The roof terrace will also be a meeting place with a surface of 2,500 m² open to the outside.
