The headquarters of the SMAP-OMOB Insurance Company, through the intermediary of SIMAK, is one of the team’s first significant projects. Three aspects of the project are particularly noteworthy : the integration of social housing, the suspension of vast glass-enclosed gardens and working atria.
The civil engineering for the project is also of interest, particularly the excavation of the basement subsequent to the laying of the floor on the ground level.
