Conference centre, Orléans

The Conference Centre in Orleans is unique in that is it a part of a complex of private properties covering over 20,000 square metres. It occupies 2,900 square metres over two levels and was open to public bidding for the interior design. With an empty concrete shell delivered by the promoter as a starting point, all the details were designed and developed on prototypes.

This facility, a stark contrast in function against the residential property – meets strict criteria, in particular in terms of soundproofing, which required sophisticated technical solutions to be implemented.
