enedis in the cataroux of tomorrow
The new regional headquarters of Enedis is located on the Cataroux site, between Clermont-Ferrand and Montferrand: an industrial enclave of 50 ha in the heart of the city which has marked its history and that of the Michelin group.
This natural site where the Tiretaine flowed, between the relief of Mont Chanturgue and Montferrand, was urbanized for industry by channeling it. An urban reflection is today carried out by the Metropolis and the Manufacture Française des Pneumatiques Michelin to write the mutation while preserving the identity of the place.
To the northwest of the city, the ILO23 project led by Quartus is a strong first step in the transformation and opening up of this high-potential site.
The conversion of the old Halles 23 into a mixed program of housing, activities and shops, outlines the new ecological and sustainable identity of the Cataroux district.
Located in alignment with the inner street of the Ilo23 project and the facade of the existing hall, the building offers a generous forecourt, announced by a canopy that filters the light spreading into the reception hall. To the north, an active façade made up of reception and catering areas brings natural light into all the common areas.
Separated into two distinct cores, the vertical circulations are in direct communication with the parking lot of the first 3 floors which, designed on the grid of the offices, has 300 parking spaces. The positioning of the company restaurant leaves the possibility of changing the spaces into additional reception or meeting rooms.
Autonomous and secure, the complex allows its users to take advantage of the services and shops offered by the facilities of Hall O23 once converted. For the district, this set of offices that can accommodate nearly 500 employees is already the symbol of a new attractiveness.
industrial frame metal awnings
The facade translates the constructive skeleton and is expressed by a unique language. The industrial frame of the concrete structure marks the mall with a structured base that brings rhythm and life to the neighborhood.
It is insulated on the outside and clad in white gray metal cladding. A glazed filling on a sill is integrated into the frame while allowing the evolution of the partitions of the offices.
The parking levels are concealed by a plant treatment while the terraces and all the flat roof terraces are also planted.
Oriented east/west, the offices are protected by fixed micro-perforated metal awnings which unfold in the continuity of the spandrel. The slopes of the roofs are materialized in the continuity of the facades. The central horizontal parts are partly occupied by English courtyards integrating the technical equipment.
integrated car park
under hanging gardens
At the heart of urban reflection on the reintegration of the Michelin factory site into the city, on the basis of the ILO23 project, the new headquarters of Enedis marks the entrance to the Cataroux district of tomorrow. Consisting of two parallel nave buildings, it is recognizable by its elegant two-headed silhouette.
In an approach that respects the environment, the project integrates 3 levels of car parks covered with hanging gardens in the heart of the building, above a ground floor dedicated to reception, catering and logistics. The two autonomous naves in their operation develop on 5 and 2 levels and accommodate the tertiary part of the program, in double height on the last level. The main nave, refined at its ends by a succession of terraces, releases in steps domestic outdoor spaces which allow to discover the grandeur of the landscape.
