The Light House, the building which sheds light on new ways of working
To rewrite the story of the Scaprim building, located at the gateway of La Défense, we partnered with the consultant-architect Karl Petit. Our mission: carry out its full restructuration and transform all 10,600 square metres to reposition the building on the rental market.
To give the site a strong personality, we had the idea to install an iconic, giant object: a white lamp passing through 5 levels of the 6-floor building. The building (suitably named “The Light House” after this lamp) sheds light on new ways of working – mixing efficiency, facilities and conviviality.
All communal areas of The Light House have been redesigned: from the reception hall with its mezzanine, the restaurant, the work café, the business centre and the landscaped terraces. The gathering areas combine comfort and flexibility. The flexible space is sometimes a 100-seat auditorium, sometimes a sport & leisure area. Finally, we rethought the fitting out of the office floors in order to welcome the future workers.
Work will begin in the summer of 2019!
