The new regional headquarters for telecommunications company Orange is an extension and renovation of an old telephone exchange.

While making the most of the industrial building, it also gives an urban coherence to the city block by breaking the project into two 'folded' volumes that wrap around the existing building.

Our starting position with regards to integration within the neighbourhood was to create a large, uniform building on a continuous ground plane, so reducing what we see as the negative effects of multiple developments, which can be overloaded with too many building types and too many textures.

This project has been longlisted in the business building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
