Milan Design Week 2023
The complex of the historic Hôpital Laënnec in Paris is home to the new headquarters of the fashion house Balenciaga furnished by UniFor.
Part of a recent major urban redevelopment project, the monumental complex of the historic Hôpital Laënnec in Paris, built in 1634 by Cardinal de La Rochefoucauld, is home to the new headquarters of the fashion house Balenciaga.
In addition to preserving the architectural character of the exterior, this adaptive reuse project also showcases distinctive interior elements, with the large wood trusses and beams left in full view.
The design of the workspaces dialogues respectfully with the historic building elements, resulting in a decidedly elegant environment in which the finishes and monochromatic furnishings play a decisive role. The careful design of the custom workstations and the refined structural solutions and technical performance of the partition systems ensure high standards of comfort and functional organization, as befits the fashion house brand.
