Taktik Designs the Fédération des établissements d’enseignement privés’ new Building

The Fédération des établissements d’enseignement privés’ (FEEP) new Taktik designed building offers more collaborative spaces that encourage meetings and sharing activities.

The entrance reveals a new reception whose faceted counter on three sides has now become the main premise of the space.

An assortment of rooms have been opened and annexed to the central corridors, providing more light in these areas and promoting points of contact.

Satellite offices now provide unassigned workstations, adapting the workplace to the new reality of teleworking. Some previously individual rooms regroup several employees working in close collaboration.

This new environmental space is now halfway between a traditional vision with closed individual offices and a contemporary vision mainly focused on open workstations in common spaces.

A notable element of this redesign is the transformation of the old library located in the heart of the building. This room, formerly dark and partitioned, now bathes in natural light.

The presence of the glass walls bridges the two main corridors allowing employees to meet in these places.

This environment includes two closed meeting rooms with varied capacities, as well as several open but intimate work areas. Each of these spaces also offers separate furniture and equipment.

Acoustic, textural and decorative, the felt is used for seats and armchairs upholstery, wall covering and custom lighting.

The warm hues of the building’s cover have been highlighted and arranged with shades of blue, the identity branded colour of the FEEP.

The roasted cherrywood, favoured for its local provenance and its durability, enhances the space’s serenity by complementing the softness of the felt.

Giving the institution its distinctive character, various murals, wallpapers and signage elements have been custom-made and developed, incorporating existing graphic codes and facilitating visitors movements.

“For us, a successful space cannot be summed up only in its aesthetics, but also in its ability to create a link between its users and the created environment,” says Taktik.
