Overview

Description
The EIFFAGE Campus functions as a collection of individual, compact offices; however, in reality, it is made up by juxtaposing three independent volumes.
Two of these volumes  are concrete-clad with a regular grid of small glass prisms. These two are connected via a suspended volume with a metal structure and glass curtain wall, symbolising the union of the company's various activities. This unique feature is both an interesting architectural element and a structural feat, highlighting the presence of this large company on a major thoroughfare. Beneath this bright white building is a vast, transparent, open lobby, which functions as a reception area as well as an exhibition space to showcase EIFFAGE's extensive expertise.
The entire property comprises six storeys, (garden floor + ground floor + four more levels). The three different facade typologies create a coherent, well-designed whole, giving the building a masterful and timeless quality.
