ERDF, Bussy-Saint-Georges (FR) - Facade Danpalon® double 10 MC, 600 mm, clear, 500 m² - Architects : Natalis▪Rupp Scotee Architectes (FR) - Contractor : Cibetanche (FR)

This ERDF (French electricity distribution network) building in Bussy-Saint-Georges plays on oppositions: a massive concrete base designed to protect against  intrusions, crowned by an aerial volume with a rough structure and varied texture. “The specifications included security, soundness, easy maintenance and natural light, as well as aestheticism.

IMG 8975At the request of both ERDF and the city, this technical building was to be integrated into the industrial estate landscape while presenting an alternative to the ‘metal boxes’ around it”, Thomas Natalis explains. “We worked by following the frame imposed by the nature of the building, playing on a simple  form, the triangle, which we multiplied and assembled in varying positions”.
IMG 8972The result is a multifaceted structure, with sloping Danpalon® triangle-shaped walls laid in alternating  directions and offering a play of multiple light reflections. “The volume vibrates and changes depending on the time of day and the weather. It’s an extremely lively building that takes on the mood of the sky, and can go from a warm orange at sunrise to the grey of a cloudy afternoon”, tells Manuel Rupp-Scotee. At night, the building becomes a lantern, illuminated from inside by atmospheric lighting while reflecting the  surrounding light.
