In the heart of the 12th district of Paris, adjoining the Sorbonne Nouvelle, Racine transforms the former headquarters of the ONF (Office National des Forêts) and will offer a new breathe into the city at the end of 2023. This singular-looking office building sees its completely refurbished facade and its roof topped with a glass greenhouse as an extension to the sky. The result of a consultation between public and private players, Racine project will offer a more slender silhouette as well as a mix of uses perfectly integrated into its district.
Open to the city and its changing needs, the program integrates third places that can adapt to multiple possibilities and different forms of nature in the city on each of its floors. Vegetable gardens, agricultural greenhouses, living spaces and several levels of gardens will thus take place on different floors.
