Restructuring for a new identity
Located in the Valmy district behind the Grande Arche, the renovation project of the KupkA building offers a new life to the building, more in line with its environment and the new work organizations.
The three main architectural ideas led by the YMA agency are as follows:
- rethinking the entrance sequence and thus the relationship of the building with the public space;
- to revitalize the facade by relying on its atypical shape to make it assume its new identity;
- enhancing the potential of the exterior spaces with the introduction of greenery for the well-being of users.
The building is notably composed of :
- 2 atriums;
- New catering areas, fitness areas, café Buisness center with a capacity of 75 people;
- accessible outdoor spaces with 550m2 of green space, rooftop.
The project aims at the best standards of labels and certifications: BREEAM EXCELLENT, HQE EXCELLENT, WELL GOLD, WIREDSCORE GOLD.
