O'Rigin Office Building

Nancy, France

Natural stone adorns the O'Rigin office complex in Nancy

O'rigin is one of the first buildings in the future “Nancy Grand Cœur” eco-district. This project is positioned as an urban link between the historic city and the more modern districts. Following this intention, the architects of the Silvio d'Ascia Architecture agency wanted to adorn the facades of the four buildings that make up this complex with beige limestone. Their choice was directed towards the Anstrude stone, extraite d’une des carrières de Polycor, et reconnue pour ses qualités esthétiques et environnementales. Cet immeuble de bureaux élégant et durable vise une double certification environnementale : HQE passeport Excellent et BREEAM niveau « Very Good ».

"Lhe mineral aspect of the building ensures continuity with the quality of the city's built fabric.
The urban identity of the project is reflected in a building that unifies and articulates four volumes, of varying height and stereometry. This theme is inspired by an analysis of the specificities of the facades of the city center, whose heights differ.
