Saguez & Partners : Manufacture Design

Established since 2003 in the city of Saint-Ouen (93), the global design agency Saguez & Partners sets down its suitcases in the Docks district, more precisely in the former Alstom hall which it is rehabilitating as a Manufacture Design, combining of work, reflection, relaxation and creativity.

Organized around a tropical garden, this U-shaped industrial building of 800 square meters distributed is constantly bathed in light thanks to the presence of patios and a double-height canopy placed in the reception area, in the center of the building . One of the main objectives of the designers was to create a workspace strongly linked to the exterior, a concept that can be found both in the internal arrangement freed from any wall and in the natural materials used, such as laminated- glued, or in the luxuriant vegetation scattered over the whole, inside as well as outside.


For the realization of its new headquarters, the Saguez & Partners team asked itself the question of the physical need for offices in an era of hyper-connection, where anyone can accomplish any task from no one. matters all. The entire three levels are flexible, thus adapting to the needs of each individual at any time of the day. For example, the sports hall can easily be transformed into a meeting room and the bookcases can become partitions to create intimate spheres in the blink of an eye. The workstations are also open: spread over two platforms, they are designed to facilitate exchange and synergies between employees, who can therefore benefit from the creative impulses of each. Relaxation areas are also available: a large terrace, a bivouac tent and two catering areas - one of which is accessible to all, employees and Audonians.

But Manufacture Design is therefore not only reserved for employees of Saguez & Partners. Indeed, for the first time in France, a design agency integrates a school. Design Act, directed by Dominique Sciamma, offers a complete training course focused on town planning and the territory of Seine Saint-Denis to its students. The place also hosts temporary and permanent artistic exhibitions, with the desire to encourage the talents of tomorrow.

Thus, the Manufacture Design not only offers its employees a healthy and pleasant climate, but also acts as an incubator of creation, thanks to a complete environment that is consistent with its field of activity.
