Axel Schoenert Architectes : Le Shift

In the heart of the Gare Saint-Lazare district in Paris (8e), a building renamed the Shift has been completely redesigned and renovated by Axel Schoenert Architects. A Parisian co-working space delivered in April 2018 which makes a clean sweep of its residential past to offer a brand new layout closer to the employee of today.

Working in co-working is good, in a high-standard interior is better! The German asset management company MEAG has entrusted the revaluation of its property located at 54 rue de Londres in Paris, Axel Schoenert Architects agency. The set consists of three comb buildings with a total area of ​​4 758 square meters: a residence in R + 6 dating from the 1930 years on street and a mansion of 1840 in R + 5, parallel and separated by a courtyard , and at the bottom of parcel an old stable of XIXe century with patio, now covered with glass and metal. Fragmented buildings that the client wished to assemble and harmonize in order to install large spaces of co-working for the SPACES group, who himself was responsible for the development of its traversing trays, freed from any interior partition .

To allow a free circulation, two vegetated courses decorate the outside areas while a staircase built ex nihilo adds fluidity to the whole.

The facade on the street, facing south, hosts a white Corian® cladding whose assembly of panels - made to measure -, echoing the layout of the neighboring Haussmann building while ensuring resistance to weather, UV, heat and fire - while concealing thick insulation that reduces energy costs.

The agency Axel Schoenert Architects has therefore made the Shift an attractive and harmonious tertiary sector.
