A new staircase leads to the existing mezzanine. The offices of the company have been built on the first floor. The large open space is the main work space around which more private offices and various meeting rooms then rotate, separated by glass walls.

The prefabricated concrete beams of the shed, given their expressive charm, were deliberately left exposed, and the roof isolated by a strong insulating thickness.
