H2O Architects designed this office in Paris, comprising of five workstations which all share the same meeting room and service space. The space was created for Hypernuit, an agency which involves different individuals acting as art directors, designers and agents in communication. Their design brief was simple – the office had to reflect the dynamic and innovative spirit that moves and animates each stakeholder agency located at the space.
The architects designed volumes from different forms and functions for each individual working space thus sharing the open space and to enjoy intimacy at the same time.
This French office space is the studio of Mathieu Lehanneur, opened in 2001 the studio is dedicated to industrial design and interior architecture. The office makes use of white with an infusion of green running throughout by way of a green path. The office is clean in its design, but at the same time it avoids being boring with funky and energetic elements.

The Foundation Nicolas Hulot for Nature and Humankind is a state approved NGO which is focused on educating people and raising awareness about environmental issues. The HQ is based in the Parisian region of Boulogne-Billancourt. Since the Foundation was growing and needed larger premises they set out to design a new one from scratch. At the same time they wanted to incorporate the ecological values on which the foundation operates, and to ensure that there were more collaborative working spaces available. Thus Nicolas Favet Architectes were briefed, and with these requirements in mind they set out to design the new HQ using raw materials such as spruce plywood for space segregation, natural linoleum for the floor and recycled bricks in various other places. As you can see below, the outcome is quite imaginative.
