Brenac+Gonzalez : Le Coruscant

At Saint-Denis Pleyel ZAC Lendit welcomes the office building The Coruscant designed by the architecture workshop Brenac + Gonzalez as the answer to a complex equation involving energy efficiency, ambiance workspaces and aesthetics contemporary.

The building includes large office space and business premises requiring large volumes. The high level of demand in terms of energy performance led the architects to limit the opening to 50% of the facades to reduce heat loss. A search of the optimal lighting of office space at then was conducted, resulting in the selection of the band window, which provides a constant and uniform lighting at all times, and allows cleaning from the inside.

To break with the aesthetics of the office buildings of the years 50 / 60 raised by this type of windows, the volume is wrapped with an expanded metal skin. The facade is composed of a superposition of two sets: a cladding of natural anodized aluminum panels, and a net champagne anodized aluminum, which gives unity to the building and is a participant in sunscreens and comfort to 'interior ambience.

The plan is organized into two L: one above, which has seven floors and benefits from a distant view, the other below, the roof offers vast terraces planted areas. Loggias are created in the thickness of the mesh and dressed with wooden decking. The lobby has an aesthetic black and white curves out with the facade.
