Outstanding renovation of 55 Amsterdam recognized in the Green Solutions Awards
At the Green Solutions Awards ceremony organized by Construction 21 and held at Paris’ City Hall, Gecina received the top sustainable renovation award for the redevelopment of its building at 55 rue d’Amsterdam in Paris’ 8th arrondissement.
The Green Solutions Awards, an international competition organized by the Construction21 network, aim to showcase outstanding developments, buildings, districts or infrastructures that combine exemplary environmental features with contributing to the fight against climate change.
Delivered in January 2017, 55 Amsterdam is a 12,350 sq.m office building that has been fully renovated. The complete redevelopment of this asset from the 1930s, located in a dense urban environment at the heart of Paris’ St Lazare district, was entrusted by Gecina to the architects Naud & Poux.
This building benefits from the highest environmental standards, with the Effinergie and BBC Renovation labels, as well as BREEAM Outstanding, LEED Platinum and HQE Renovation certification. It also incorporates urban biodiversity issues with the BiodiverCity label, thanks in particular to the creation of extensive garden areas and a green terrace, which offers outstanding views over Paris. It is the first office building in Paris to have been awarded the Well label, focused on user comfort, wellness and health. The building’s lobby is home to an art gallery that can be seen from the road and is a vibrant hub within the building.
The building has quickly attracted a number of users, including the startup Algolia, the Thom Europe group and Edicom.
