A Modern Office Takes Over a Classic Building

Estelle Vincent Architecture was hired with the daunting task of designing the new headquarters of Ekimetrics within a classic Haussmann building on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The building comes with historical significance and traditional charm, while Ekimetrics is a marketing company that’s dynamic and artistic. The challenge was to merge the two to create a cohesive office space fit for the young brand within 1000 square meters (10,763 square feet).

To help break up the larger rooms of the office, which house a large number of workstations, they designed structures within these open spaces to add some privacy for informal conference rooms, like the above Eki.Cube.

The Eki.Cube adds two meeting rooms to the large space within its wooden structure. On one side, there are built-in lockers and a slide! On the other, there’s a staircase.

Because every office needs a slide!

The top floor of the Eki.Cube provides another semi-private room for employees to gather for informal meetings.

The Eki.Cabin also transforms to become a meeting room with the 24 modules it’s built to hold. The wooden boxes can be moved around to become different things, like a stage, steps, or seats.

The Eki.Truck space houses the kitchen behind its food truck facade and is a place for employees to relax and have a cup of coffee.
