MDI Architecture names interior partners on Studio Libeskind’s €100m East Thiers Station project
MDI Architecture is set to bring to life the interior of the 6,000 sqm €100m East Thiers Station in Nice – designed by Daniel Libeskind – with Agilité Solutions, Zatti Interiors, and ESA Engineering listed as partners for the realisation of the development.
Once complete, the building will house the new headquarters of Hilton Hotels, and offices of a start-up listed on the French stock exchange, Les Agences de Papa – a real estate company managed by Frédéric Ibanez, Nicolas Fratini and Claude Li.
Inspired by technological innovation and modernity, with a strong focus on eco-sustainability, the project – which is set for completion in July 2022 – will include flexible spaces designed to foster collaboration, with a rooftop dedicated to the recording of podcasts and other business communications.
With offices in Paris, Milan, and Luxemburg, fit out specialist Agilité Solutions – which counts the likes of LinkedIn, LVMH, Deutsche Börse, Fred Perry, Five Guys, and The Instant Group among its roster – has been appointed to manage all work coordination activities as the general contractor.
“These are three very solid partners, that I have carefully selected,” explained architect Maurizio De Iasi. “Agilité Solutions – with which I have already had the opportunity to collaborate – is one of the most reliable construction companies in Europe, and boasts experience with clients such as Booking.com, Mozilla, and Deloitte.
“With this project, we will give shape to a visionary idea of office architecture, capable of anticipating the needs of new working models. It will be an unparalleled space, in which entrepreneurial dynamics will prevail. A place to work, collaborate, but above all, a place to live. “
Maria Luisa Daglia, Agilité Solutions’ Italia country manager added: “Working on this project will be an exciting and stimulating challenge for our entire team. We are very pleased to be able to support a group of top-level professionals who will design and build the new headquarters of a revolutionary and rapidly expanding real estate company. “
The 6,000 sqm project forms part of a wider 20,000 sqm development – set to include high-end commercial space that will feature two levels of shops, a 120 room hotel, offices, a sculptural entry pavilion, a 200-seat auditorium, and a restaurant offering an open roof terrace with views towards the sea on the top floor.
