Headquarters HP Inc. et HP Enterprise
This new administrative building, which includes the new European headquarters of HP Inc. and HP Enterprise is located in the Meyrin-Satigny Industrial Park (GE). It is part of the development of a high technology campus (The Hive).
The building facade of the building is made of prefabricated "sandwich" elements that include a load-bearing part, insulation and exterior cladding. The vertical elements carry the upper slabs while the horizontal elements have no supporting function.
The facade grid is inspired by computer language. It is based on the 0 1 0 1 0 repetition of the binary codes. 32 different modules were required to compose the 334 parts of the facade.
The anthracite grey facing elements tinted in the mass are treated with acid. The joints, treated in negative, reinforce the monolithic aspect of the elements.
The building fits in a classic rectangular plan and rises 4 levels above the ground floor. The latter is essentially common to both companies, while above, they have two floors each, totally independent, with dedicated access and elevators.
On the ground floor, the receptions of both companies are facing each other. This floor also has a restaurant, a coffee corner, a multipurpose room and a professional kitchen. The floors, on the other hand, reflect the evolution of the open space with meeting rooms spaces of different dimensions and typologies (telephone booth, small lounge with sofa, confidential room with reinforced acoustics, classical conference room, etc.) .
The entire building meets Minergie requirements.
