"The project consists of the rehabilitation of an office building located along a main road into the city of Rennes, Avenue Henri Freville.
Before construction, the façade mouldings were composed of prefabricated concrete panels which served as a support to implement thermal insulation from the outside. The set of woodwork has been changed and brought back into the nude exterior finish of the façade.
To break with an existing smooth aesthetic, we chose cladding strips to achieve a kinetic façade by assembling 2 different profiles (JI PONANT W + JI PONANT M). Changing over the course of the day, the relief of this cladding creates a permanent contrast between the reflections of the sun and the direct environment of the building.
Granite Silky Shine Chrome is the colour chosen for this cladding to reflect a context mainly composed of gardens and tall trees.
JI PONANT W + JI PONANT M facets create a delicate play of reflections between greenery, sun and urbanity.”
