Gate One belongs to the new generation of buildings demonstrating that ecological footprint control and tertiary real estate development are now compatible.
The building’s envelope has been designed to reduce heat losses during the winter and limit them during the summer, while allocating a significant part to the illumination of the interior spaces. Gate One also benefits from a solution offering the best overall efficiency in the production of cold and heat, including aeraulic and hydraulic antennas to favour the free-cooling (free cooling consumes less energy and uses low temperatures from outside to cool inside spaces). From radiant ceilings ensuring an optimal thermal and acoustic comfort without fan or compressor, to the technical management of the Building integrating tools to reduce lighting and water consumption, the building is conceived in order to make the maintenance easier.
At Paris gates, the occupants of these refurbished offices will be able to benefit from a garden with trees, with spaces of relaxation, walks and discovery of the urban fauna. A particular attention was paid to the reception of the birds and butterflies from the gardens. Two green patios are also accessible and offer a favorable biotope for honeybees and wild pollinators.
