A Former Car Manufacturer’s Locale Becomes a Chic Paris Office

2023 Best of Year Winner for International Extra Large Corporate Office

For years, the modernist 1964 building at 75 Avenue de la Grande Armée in Paris housed the French automotive manufacturer PSA Peugeot Citroën, which left in 2017. Saguez & Partners restored existing details while also transforming 250,000 square feet of the interiors into a serene, biophilic headquarters for Boston Consulting Group that maximizes sunlight for 1,200 employees. Part of the triple-height former car showroom has become a cathedral-like lobby, café, and coworking space, with greenery creating semiprivate groves along windows, that’s open to the public; elsewhere on the ground level is the business center featuring a 180-seat auditorium.
