Technip Energies, a French energy group that is industry leader, has a new headquarters in Nanterra opposite the Arena Paris La Défense. The company abandoned the tower that historically housed its headquarters for a brand new building: grandiose, airy, invaded by light and with huge spaces. A space that mixes wood and concrete, with a state-of-the-art structure. The new construction is part of a large real estate office program called Origine, developed by Icade. Designed by Maud Caubet Architectes and Quadri Fiore Architecture, the new headquarters, which will host about 2,500 employees, represents a milestone in the building sector for the energy transition, thanks to its sustainable and green connotation. It will also be the symbol of a more human workspace, capable of promoting communication, teamwork, conviviality, performance and innovation. Seventy thousand square metres of offices arranged around a vast garden and perfectly integrated with the city testify to the importance of physical and mental well-being in the working environment.
The dominant colour of the surfaces that cover this prestigious and innovative building is Clay, a cream white belonging to the Limestone collection by Cotto d’Este, which conveys the splendour of the seabed, stratified, sedimented and fixed in stone by the patient work of water and time. It is a 14 mm thick slab o porcelain stoneware, therefore thickened with exceptional performance: resistant to heavy loads, temperature waste, chemical agents and deeply non-slip. Limestone is suitable for meeting any design need and the new Technip Energies headquarters is perfect for testifying to its versatility. Also in this case, the PROTECT® antibacterial protection is guaranteed to the floor and wall coverings, indispensable for a building with these functions, in an era in which prevention and sanitisation are essential.
