french architect paul coudamy designed a new office space for beartech an internet hosting office in paris. the ‘bears cave’ is organized in three different spaces for working, leisure and meeting areas. the back space is emphasized by parisian rock and brick walls creating a solid and mineral atmosphere. a honeycomb cardboard bench creates a low separation between the meeting room and the working spaces. the cavern walls are created using wood waste pieces collected in dumpsters, sidewalks and wastelands.
