VINCI's headquarters, an emblematic program in Les Groues

In September 2021, nearly 4,000 VINCI employees moved into the archipelago, the Group's headquarters. All the business lines will be brought together on the Les Groues fringe, so as to encourage the development of synergies and multiple connections within the archipelago, but also with the district's ecosystem.

The two architects, Jean-Paul Viguier and Marc Mimram, set out to create an architectural ensemble that is both plural and homogeneous, reflecting the Group's DNA, in order to "create a city". In this way, the archipelago represent both the diversity and the collective spirit of VINCI, and will illustrate its openness to the city. One particularity - and added value - of the project lies in its mixed-use logic, since it interweaves a private building for tertiary use with a public transport structure, with the future Nanterre La Folie station.
This project also demonstrates the Group's strong ambition in terms of development, which is to build the city on top of the city. The aim is to recreate urban intensity in this former railway wasteland in order to make the best use of land resources and limit urban sprawl. Finally, the archipelago is intended to become a demonstrator of the Group's know-how and innovations, exemplary in terms of quality of life at work for its residents and the energy performance of the buildings.
