From early design to final completion of the buildings, Peutz have contributed with regard to building physics, acoustics, fire safety and sustainability. Worth mentioning is a fairly elaborate research we conducted into the possibility of making this museum with almost complete glass facades. We studied how much daylight could be admitted in relation to the sensitivity of specific museum objects which has led to the present layout of the exhibit.

The Champs Elysees restaurant lighting is characterized by accent lighting on the vertical surfaces that virtually bring them closer to the observer. The highlight is on the in line luminous screens and the counter at the back of the establishment.

The light sources used for general lighting, especially in the circulations, are hidden in the ceiling hence freeing the field of view to allow the reading of the decorative panels without creating disturbing luminance. The absence of reflected light beams in the facade glazing allows a 180 ° view of the Champs Elysees.

Suspended on six mega-columns, the new head office of the Intesa SanPaolo bank, with a height of 166 m, is located near the Porta Susa railway station. It provides 2,000 work stations spread across its open spaces.

The conception studies for the project of the new “’Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan sur le plateau de Saclay » have been developped using the BIM (REVIT) for all aspect of the building.

On September 16th , the Golden BIM 2015 that recognizes the best uses of BIM was awarded to the design team who have worked on this project.
