Opening. Ateliers Hermès

Lina Ghotmeh — Architecture is proud to announce the opening of its project designed and realized for Hermès.

Offering an architecture that extends the surrounding landscape, this building is made with the highest ecological ambitions. It constitutes a real technical and architectural feat: to date, it is the first industrial building to benefit from the E4C2 label. A low carbon, energy positive, passive building. With her atelier, Lina Ghotmeh designed a structure in wood and structural bricks with more than 500,000 bricks, produced 70 kilometers from Louviers in order to minimize the carbon impact of construction while promoting the artisanal know-how of Norman brickmakers.
