CGR International is a global leader in metal components for the automotive and aerospace industries. From their headquarters in Sevran on the east of Paris, CGR employs 1500 people on 20 sites accross various continents.
Their director wanted a turn-key global Design & Build solution to renovate their office workspace, so that they would be innovative, adapted to new ways and cultures of working, and reflect their DNA.
ARCH.DESIGN was chosen to elaborate the strategy and change management programm (in particular co-construction with the employees and managers), and translate all the needs into an interior Architecture Design chart. Our project managers then carried out the fit out works to transform their industrial building into a high class connected hub of innovation.
The CGR teams are delighted, this is what they now say :
“In our new offices, it’s well-being every day! “
“I wanted to thank you for your professionalism, your kindness, your calm and your ability to find solutions throughout the duration of our project. It was a great help for me who had never dealt with this type of project. “
Insight from our interior designer: Our goal was to take advantage of the natural light of the atrium, to open spaces and make everything brighter and more cosy.
To enhance CGR’s savoir-faire, we integrated some industrial style raw materials (brick, wood, concrete, …), and created a warm welcoming atmosphere, with a natural touch and installation of a tree in the center of the atrium.
The mobile wall installed between the meeting room and the kitchen space allows for a very flexible use of the space, converting them in an instant to a workcafé that adapts along the day to the needs of the employees.
