Modular space concepts for the future
The new headquarters of Viereck Architects Ltd. were recently realized using the [BOX:09]. The project utilizes the world`s first three-dimensional copper facade system as well as the maximum possible glass panel size. These design features offer the appearance of innovative architecture. The use of an open plan office provides an ideal working atmosphere in an urban structure.
Completed in 2010, the Victor Hugo hub – a 9,615 m2 multiplex – is located in the Saint Raphaël town centre. The impetus for this project was the town’s desire to revitalise the railway district: a gamble that has now paid off! The hub – which houses seven cinema auditoria with 1,350 seats, a bus station and a two-level car park – has shown itself to be a key tool for urban regeneration.

One important aspect of this project was to achieve the essence of a minimalist form. In order to achieve this, we chose to use the same material for both roof and facade. It is easily understandable how the roof material dictated the material vertical elevations. This is how the all-copper solution crystallized. In addition, another advantage of using copper is that it is a material that ages beautifully and diversely.
