François Bertière, Chairman and CEO of Bouygues Immobilier, laid the foundation stone of the future head office of the Clarins Group and of a Marriott group hotel in the presence of Anne Hidalgo, first deputy Mayor of Paris, Jean-Christophe Fromantin, Member of Parliament and Mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine, Christian Courtin-Clarins, Chairman of the Clarins Group's Supervisory Board, Olivier Courtin-Clarins, Managing Director of the Clarins Group Executive Board, Philip Shearer, President of the Clarins Group Executive Board, Emmanuel Bertheau, CEO of Boissée Finances, and Martin Bouygues, Chairman and CEO of the Bouygues group
Designed by architects Valode & Pistre, the complex will house the Clarins Group's head office staff. It will also contain a Marriott group hotel owned by Boissée Finances. Forming a link between the City of Paris and Neuilly-sur-Seine, the building is ideally located in the 17th arrondissement of Paris, on the corner of the Avenue de la Porte des Ternes and the Rue Gustave Charpentier, close to the Porte Maillot metro station on Line 1 of the Paris metro.
The entrance to the offices will be in the Clarins Group’s colours and the translucent façade will be decorated with strips of colour recalling those of the Group.
In accordance with the Clarins Group’s values, the new building will use technology to enhance environmental performance while ensuring maximum comfort for occupants. They will have seven floors of office space and enjoy a working environment that combines natural comfort with cutting-edge technology, including:
- automatic lighting management according to levels of natural light and occupancy,
- “breathing” ventilated façades,
- rooftop photovoltaic and thermal panels,
- a chilled-beam heating and air-conditioning system,
- recovery of energy from air treatment plants,
- recovery of river water to irrigate the gardens.
The project is designed to comply with stringent environmental standards, aiming for certification under the BREEAM "Very Good" and HQE® High Environmental Quality standards as well as the BBC-Effinergie® low-energy building label.
The Marriott group hotel, located beside the Cardinal de Julleville public square, will have a white-flecked façade whose horizontal strips contrast with the vertical lines of the office building. It will have 149 rooms and suites on nine floors. One floor will be taken up by meeting rooms, a spa and a 175-seat restaurant. The four-star hotel project aims to obtain the Certivéa HPE (High Energy Performance) label according to the PEQA energy performance and quality benchmark and will be the Marriott group's first AC Hotel in France.
