Saguez & Partners : Manufacture Design

Installed since 2003 in the city of Saint-Ouen (93), the global design agency Saguez & Partners places its suitcases in the district of Docks, more precisely in the old hall Alstom which it rehabilitates in Manufacture Design, 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 has asked the question of the physical need for offices in an era of hyper-connection, where anyone can accomplish any task since n ' everything. The whole of the three levels is modular, adapting itself to the needs of each one at any moment of the day. For example, the gym can easily be converted into a meeting room and libraries can become partitions to create intimate spheres in the blink of an eye. The work stations are also open: on two trays, they are designed to facilitate exchanges 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 such as Audoniens.

But the Manufacture Design is 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, proposes a complete training centered on urban planning and the territory of the Seine Saint-Denis to its students. The site also hosts temporary and permanent art exhibitions, with the will 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.
