4 essentiels

EN / FR / CZ

Maif (Mutuelle Assurance des Instituteurs de France) is a French insurance company, its HQ is located in Niort, where this project took place. To encourage communication and exchange, the space is organized as a 'Combi-Office.' It allows for a high degree of flexibility. The Combi-Office in its compactness – compared to other office forms – proves itself to be highly economical in terms of surface area.

The 'Combi-Office' is organized around 4 zones unified by the concept of 'The Essentials'. Each zone has a specific theme: flora, breeze, dawn and spring. The workers move in a central line where 'public utilities' - copy machines, meeting rooms etc.- are located in the middle, thus exchanges between the workers is encouraged.
