The new headquarters of Caisse d’Épargne Bourgogne Franche-Comté in Dijon, situated within the Valmy business park, stands as a testament to ecological and sustainable construction practices, prominently featuring timber in its design. The project comprises a stable two-level base and an emerging four-level structure. Notably, the base incorporates a triple-height patio and atrium, allowing natural light to permeate workspaces, aligning with the bank’s commitment to responsible construction.

The emphasis on visibility is evident in the design, with the emerging structure providing optimal prominence to the project. The roof of the base transforms into a spacious terrace on the R+3 level, serving as a convivial space and meeting area—a crucial midpoint between the top floor and ground level. Sustainability is a key focus, extending beyond construction to encompass energy-efficient design principles, achieving passive energy performance and an E3C2 rating.

Within the base, approximately 2,000 m² of workspace is designed for flexibility, allowing subdivision into autonomous units of less than 300 m² each. This modularity ensures adaptability to evolving needs, underscoring the practicality and efficiency of the architectural planning. Caisse d’Épargne Bourgogne Franche-Comté’s new headquarters not only redefines its physical presence but also serves as a beacon of sustainable construction, showcasing the benefits of timber as a primary building material.
