The Nexity-Lyon head office stands in an industrial zone on a site between La Balme and the Saône River, bordered on the northwest by a rail network.
The choice of a metallic structure magnified by its copper-rust color seemed obvious for this working building that embraces the district’s industrial heritage.
The vertical straight edges that structure and order the facades give the building a specific rhythm and industrial magic.
To keep within its physical limits and offer maximum linearity, the volume folds and undulates.
The different meanders of its outline produce a movement alternating between full and empty, convexity and garden-containing concaveness.
The close bond between nature and architecture has become essential for any contemporary working space.
