Architecture of Green Office® Châtenay

Bioclimatic architecture

The bioclimatic design of Green Office® Châtenay favours natural light sources. A mechanical ventilation system, optimised glazed surfaces and wooden and aluminium window frames strike a perfect balance between natural light and thermal comfort all year round. The building will also harvest rainwater to water the gardens and supply water for the bathrooms.

“The location and landscaped design of this Green Office® carries on Châtenay-Malabry’s tradition as a ‘garden town’. The building’s architecture is seeking to convey not only a high-tech image for maximum environmental performance, but also a fusion of nature and architecture. 

The corrugated aluminium exterior wall cladding catches the light, contrasting with the large green wall which changes with the seasons. This emphasises the building’s main entrance. On the top of the building sits a large frame featuring a photovoltaic ‘frieze’ which draws attention to the whole building. This has become a new standard-bearer for sustainable architecture, symbolising a high profile and a distinctive identity,” explain the architects Brenac & Gonzalez
