This project is driven by the desire to foster teamwork, cooperation and digital expertise. Located close to the Pont d’Issy, facing the Saint-Germain Island, Bridge is composed of two building marking the perimeter of a pedestrian public space: a new office building and a restored “Eiffel-style” covered market.
The main building is characterized by its singular asymetric shape and overlooked by a 15 meter long cantilever rising 28 meters above the ground. On the inside, Bridge opens on a 30-meter high and 80-meter long landscaped atrium. The visitor is immersed in an “indoor city” composed of suspended volumes. Above the atrium, the office spaces extend into plant-covered balconies horizontally and into two levels of planted rooftops vertically. The entire building is bathed in natural light thanks to three wide glass roofs. Bridge is not just a place where people transit, it is a lively and animated space inducing new encounters.
The use of materials selected for their raw aesthetics (wood, metal, stone, concrete…) integrates natural simplicity into the workspace and contributes to the creation of a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere for the 5.000 collaborators and visitors of the company. Reinventing the codes of the office real estate in order to place the user at the very heart of the project, Bridge is mainly composed of working areas scattered in a 10-floor building aiming to create the best “user experience” possible. Shared spaces and a company cafeteria are located on the ground floor of the main building. Coworking spaces, shops and restaurants are open to the public in the market building.
This outstandingly conscious project is certified “NF – Bâtiments Tertiaires Neufs, Démarche”, “HQE Bureaux Passeport Exceptionnel”, “BREEAM Excellent” and holds the Effinergie+ label. With the concept of digitalization at the heart of the project, Bridge is also looking at a “WiredScore” certification in the near future.
