Siège de la Méridionale

Our project will tell this southern story, its topographical references, its materiality which alternates the clarity of the glazing with the Mediterranean patterns of the azulejos predominantly blue. This office project is not another tertiary building in the territory of our cities, it is a building which will showcase the wealth of Marseille and its Mediterranean identity.
The first building in the metamorphosis of the quays, our project is born on an exceptional site. Where the city and the port meet, it is located in the extension of Boulevard Mirabeau and at the center of the urban transformation project initiated by the Plan Guide de la Joliette.
Symbol and new marker of a renewed port imagination, it constitutes both an entry point to the city from the sea, and a starting point towards Corsica and the Mediterranean.
