Avril Group Paris Head Office Rehabilitation 

Avril recently took delivery of its reconfigured Paris head office. Located rue de Monceau in the heart of the Paris golden triangle, the outdated 1980s building was extended vertically by a timber structure and completely renovated to now accommodate more than 500 employees.
Bold initiative: transformation of the former, sparsely planted courtyard into a lively and bright, animated centre within the building. Under a bioclimatic glass roof, the vast atrium is a softwood universe with abundant vegetation that provides a vibrant space for socialising and encounters.
Design and build consortium: Legendre property developer, Richez_Associés, Unité with consulting engineers Ginko & Associés, Somete, Yves Hernot, BEGC, Casso, and Dauchez Payet.
