Conversion of an existing office building into a student residence
Groupe Gecina, GEC7
The project consists in converting an obsolete office block into 107 student housing units equipped with shared areas and services. The HEQ building, topped by a planted roof, provides a number of mixed uses (duplex and triplex rentals and flat sharing) thanks to the flexibility of the spaces. The variety of colours and the morphology of the offices have been retained, but the agency has further developed the interplay of colours
and added mirrors to allow neighbouring gardens to be reflected on the student residence. At the same time, the presence of nature provides the building with a quiet atmosphere, encouraging a reflective setting in which to study.
