Xylo – Fontenay-sous-Bois, France

Remodelling underway, delivery in H1 2023

The Xylo office building is a central landmark of Fontenay-sous-Bois, a municipality located in Greater Paris. The 8,845 m² restructuring programme designed by POK Architecture will offer future occupants a welcoming environment, user-friendly services and highly appreciated accessibility.

The Xylo building - convivial, accessible, user-friendly
Interior design with a “French touch”

Nestling in the heart of the east Paris region’s biggest business district and the Grand Paris Express transport interchange, Xylo is a byword for accessibility and user-friendliness. This 1990s edifice has been remodelled to human dimensions, offering living spaces logically redesigned to encourage conviviality, and flexible, divisible, generously sunlit office spaces to maximise user well-being.

Subtle hints of nature are provided by the larchwood cladding, whose warm colour is offset by the mineral tones of the concrete, thereby enhancing the welcoming feel of the place and weaving graphic rhythm through the living spaces; in addition, a wall of ferns offers a window of greenery to stimulate the imagination of users and visitors alike.

Xylo - a building in compliance with
the latest environmental standards

With ecological and environmental issues in mind, since 2012 Covivio has completely renovated the insulation on the Xylo building. These improvements guarantee exemplary energy performance as well as high levels of visual and aural comfort.

In 2022, Covivio commissioned POK Architecture to renovate over 8,845 m² of offices and services in order to have Xylo certified HQE, ensuring well-managed energy costs, BREEAM, guaranteeing respect for the environment through waste recycling, for example, and BBC Effinergie, whereby a fourfold reduction in greenhouse gas emissions can be achieved.
