The 507 building, set in Chalette-sur-Loing on the historical site of the Hutchinson Group will welcome its new innovation center.
507 is itself tinged with history: as a royal paper mill, it was burned down in 1869 and rebuild by Gustave Eiffel. The interior design will focus on highlighting the metallic structure.
A professional kitchen, an auditorium and an immersive room of virtual reality are some of the structuring elements around which revolve wide circulation spaces, suspended walkways and a toboggan.
Open and adjustable, 507 also integrates training and research centers, as well as a show space for the Group’s products and solutions.
Special attention was brought to the thermal and environmental performances of the building, with an isolation by the outside and meticulous care given to natural lighting.
On the west side, the entrance is highlighted by an inviting emerging volume, while on the east side the outside terrace offers an exceptional view on the full extent of the site and its refreshing ornamental lake.
