Located in the Bellini district of Puteaux, the Sense project replaces the emblematic Norma tower. The building is more modern. The architects have played with materials, light and shadow and transparency. The facades are treated in a unified manner with a combination of vertical white polished concrete and horizontal, alternating white lacquered glass and transparent glazing. Sense offers 19,000 square meters of office space and services on seven floors, as well as a mezzanine that can accommodate up to 1,580 people. Inside, the building houses a large RIE, a coffee shop, an auditorium and a corporate concierge. Sense also has a surprising interior courtyard where a succession of cascading terraces of approximately 1,400 m² overlook the central patio.

A word about the architect

Founded in 1986, the Lobjoy-Bouvier-Boisseau architecture and urban planning studio now has over 32 years of experience. Installed since the summer of 2012 in Boulogne-Billancourt (92), in a former porcelain factory that has been completely renovated, the studio is directed by Ludovic Lbjoy, Céline Bouvier, Jean-Lou Boisseau and Sébastien Krafft. The team of architects designs contemporary buildings in each of the agency's fields of expertise: offices and headquarters, housing, public facilities, urban projects, factories, multimodal hubs and shopping centers...

The aaPGR - PRAT GIGOU RIDGWAY architects practice focuses on the design of workplaces. Alain Prat, Joël Gigou and Philip Ridway joined forces in 1999 to carry out a wide range of projects in a variety of geographical and cultural contexts. Over the years, the group has been enriched by a team of young colleagues specialising in the various skills of the profession.
