Each of these programs is directly accessible from the large ground floor lobby of the building. The offices are 19 metres deep, allowing for a 1.35m working grid, with the potential for open plan, island or mixed arrangements. Workspaces are located within 6 or 7 metres of the building’s extensive facades, and are served by 1.4 metres of circulation space followed by central cores of circulation, toilets and meeting rooms. At the end of each branch, and on every floor, outlook points take advantage of the building’s stunning views out over the city, with breakaway spaces and relaxation areas for the office workers.
The four gardens are terraced according to the natural slope of the site, and are themed around the adjacent Impressionist Park, a Zen garden, a grand public square, a children’s playground, and a tribune or amphitheater for events, are the dominant elements of the site. Occupying 70% of the plot and facing south, they are used to create public spaces, like breaths of fresh air, directly accessible from the street laterally, while also offering continuity from the neighbouring park along the building’s length.
