Carré Suffren – Paris 15th district, France
Renovation under way, delivery in Q1 2021
Boasting an exceptional location near the Eiffel Tower, in the heart of the 15th arrondissement of Paris, Carré Suffren is a property development spanning nearly 25,000 m² organised into three wings. Its restructuring focuses on three key areas: nature, interconnectivity and a "folding" design. It aims to create a welcoming, elegant and light-filled space, making Carré Suffren a real business centre that serves its occupants.

"The work being carried out on Carré Suffren is aimed at disrupting the geometric appearance of the existing building. A "folding" design was conceived for both the roof of the extension and the partitioning, furniture and materials used to create a more human scale. The extension was developed to highlight the main entrance; as such, the user's pathway starts in a public space and ends in the garden, in the heart of the development. Natural light and vegetation are the two final strong components of the project. They are used in different forms and punctuate the spaces to make them increasingly conducive to meetings, work and relaxation."
Making serenity chime with functionality
Carré Suffren integrates living and working spaces bathed in natural light, open to the exterior and surrounded by green spaces. Several patios, a garden spanning nearly 2,000 m² in the heart of the complex and a largely glass-paned interior street foster the well-being of the occupants. Due to the wide range of services offered, the complex is positioned as a leading business centre and empowered to meet the strong expectations elicited by its location.
Mixed-use common areas and tailored services
At the crossroads of current and future expectations, Carré Suffren is being restructured to support business development and the desires of new employees. The lobby, which will showcase a monumental artwork, will also include a tea room. The reception will provide confidentiality areas and "Plug & Work" spaces for visitors and occupants. A concierge service will facilitate the daily lives of users. Restaurants and cafeterias will satisfy everyone's needs at all times of the day. The business centre with its conference room, private terrace, creative room and modular meeting rooms will adapt to all requirements in terms of training, sharing, discussions, meetings, etc.
