LAUR Office
by Alain Carle Architecte

Alex Lesage

The LAUR office is designed around a succession of masonry blocks that recreate a bright outdoor urban environment, delineating the workspaces through a maze.

Large skylights reproduce natural light overhead and randomly punctuate the nature of the lighting. This much more diaphanous light also contributes to a feeling of being outdoors.

The space was sunken to allow full penetration by natural light to the lower level, offering a double-height meeting place for employees, as a pivot point among the multiple adjacent functions.

This project has been longlisted in the small workspace interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
