located in saint mesmes, france is a new commercial office designed by french firm
LAN Architecture. the site which is on a slope provides views over the neighboring hills.
the concept for the building was to create two hierarchically related volumes, placed
perpendicularly to one another along a north-south axis  following the slope of the site.
one of the volumes contains flexible work spaces while the other encloses a workshop,
exhibition space and storage areas. offices occupy the upper area of the site and are raised
above ground to provide an impression of lightness. the intersection of the two volumes
serves as the entrance, with a sloped ramp rising up into the building. the elevations
and roof are completely constructed from black painted concrete.
