Administrative headquarters for ‘Groupe e’, Switzerland

Groupe e Administrative headquarters, Granges-Paccot Building

The e group brief asked the architects to imagine living spaces always becoming, places that requalify the individual and collective work: communication, transparency, fun at work, exchange, adaptation. Intentions infinitely precious, simple as water that nourishes life and a contemporary design because it goes against the trends of our time: the Groupe e Administrative headquarters building, near Fribourg.

On this rural site the company buildings are clustered, on the edge of the village of Granges-Paccot and scattered houses, close to the city of Fribourg.

At this place ‘Plexus’ weaves a network with its built environment and landscape of discretion, it appears that the project is a low volume, extended, in communion with human and ecological intentions.

‘group e’ is arranged to form a complex living space, respecting the environment and daylighting.

Building-scales vary depending on its orientation, the built environment: it sways and flows as needed.

– Relaxation areas interact with the existing school and exposure to sunlight

– Pedestrian walkways occur above, below, inside, everywhere so that communication becomes freer, more open

– Seek the views of the deep green foliage that drapes treillagent heaven, etc.

– The facade is designed as an epidermis that regulates the local climate on account of variations of the seasons

All energies are used, all those that can store and forward architecture: variations of scale, magnetism relational, dynamic sculptural, spatial event. For the building toconvey to its users all the wealth, the power of energy that inhabits.
