The Waves is an office building in the heart of the Media Bay estate in Kirchberg.
Curved lines, a double envelope of glass and Corten, an inner courtyard running through the floors...
The Waves is a bold office building that stands out as a unique and emblematic new project in Kirchberg.
It is the flagship building of the new Media Bay estate developed and built by Félix Giorgetti, and was designed by the prestigious architectural firm Valentini HVP Architects.
4 and 7
Bathed in natural light
A real architectural jewel, it consists of two volumes of asymmetrical heights linked by a large open interior courtyard that bathes all the spaces in natural light. It is four storeys high on one side and seven storeys high on the other.
The entrance is set back slightly, at the junction of the two buildings on the north-east façade, while access to the 100 parking spaces, located on the two basement levels, is via the south-west façade.
The Waves also houses a large 360 m2 inner courtyard that will welcome occupants and visitors in a pleasant, green setting.
Excellent energy performance
With a total surface area of 14,000 m2, this office building will offer optimised, tailor-made and comfortable work spaces to promote the well-being, collaboration, exchanges and productivity of employees.
Its BREEAM Excellent certification will guarantee its energy performance and sustainability.
The Waves is also aiming for Well Gold certification and meets the standards for people with reduced mobility.
A second tram line
The Waves will take place on Rue Lucien Thiel, on the Kirchberg plateau, known for the large national and international companies that have chosen to establish themselves there.
More than a simple business district, the Kirchberg is animated by a strong dynamic thanks to an important commercial, cultural, educational and residential offer. All this in a modern and welcoming environment.
The address is also very well served thanks to the numerous public transport lines that will allow access to the four corners of the city, including a second tram line that will run at the foot of the building by 2035.
