A green roof made up of sloping triangular panels covers the rest of the building, thus minimizing the development’s visual impact and ensuring continuity with the surrounding landscape.
Its design, based on the “campus” concept, aims to create quality work environments that promote collaboration and prioritize living conditions and user comfort.
The plan for JJA's headquarters located in Gonesse, north of Paris, is inspired by ethics, efficiency and innovation: three values that represent the company. Its design, based on the “campus” concept, aims to create quality work environments that promote collaboration and prioritize living conditions and user comfort. Two large volumes house offices and showrooms distributed around a garden and two pedestrian walkways: one for clients on the ground floor, the other for employees on the first floor. The main building truly stands out thanks to its imposing two-story glass facade with white concrete slats, crowned by a monumental canopy that gives the entrance the gravitas these headquarters deserve. It is designed around a central garden covered by an ETFE structure, which constitutes the site’s green lung and is visible from all interior areas.
