Appreciations towards Atelier du Pont for providing the following description:

法国公共健康局(Santé publique France)的办公楼位于文森森林公园边缘,并从中汲取灵感。大楼完全由木材制成,包括结构、地面和立面等。外形就像一捆立在地面上的枝条,如环抱的手臂一般伸展开来。这种设计象征着法国公共健康局的使命,即监管每一位居住在法国的人的健康状况。目的是在环境和健康方面树立典范。

The office building for Santé publique France, the French public healthcare agency, is located at the edge of the Bois de Vincennes, from which it draws its inspiration. It is entirely made of wood: structure, flooring, façades… The shape is like a bundle of sticks placed on the ground that branch out like open, protective arms. This design symbolizes the mission of this institution, which oversees the health of everyone who lives in France. The aim is to be exemplary in terms of its impact on the environment and the health.

The stairways have been generously sized and naturally lit to encourage people walk to go from one floor to the next, instead of taking the elevators.

The workspaces are luminous and well cushioned in terms of sound; and have ample views of the surrounding landscape. The common spaces were created to stimulate interaction and host informal gatherings and meetings. The restaurant and small cafés on the various floors are warm and intimate. Large, furnished terraces are available to anyone who wants to eat outside and enjoy the beautiful view over the wooded park.
