55 Amsterdam

First built in 1929, 55 Amsterdam entered the 21st century thanks to an architectural intervention that was both audacious and respectful of the historic context. A perfect alliance of the restored parts of the old building and new contemporary elements create the balance for this project anchored into historic Paris while resolutely turned towards the future.
The primary focus of attention concerns user comfort, given that wellbeing in the workplace is fundamental to our architectural approach. Like boutique hotels, 55 Amsterdam is ready to welcome tomorrow’s employees.
Visibility and readability will be key words in this restructuring exercise expressed around the reconstruction of the large white concrete monumental staircase. This space will be a gathering place, a setting for exchanges and identification in the heart of the building.
Six times awarded a certificate for environmental excellence, the project is also an emblem of resilience, adaptation and reuse. Its controlled carbon footprint allows it to be defined as one of today’s major environmental projects.
The building is also home to two monumental works by the Czech artist Jan Kalab. This artwork completes the iterative process initiated by the agency.
