Mozilla Headquarters – Paris (75) – France


Location: Paris, France
Project: Headquarters
Surface: 1 800 m2
Date: 2013
Role: Architect
Status: Completed


With Mozilla we agreed to design their new French headquarters in the original 16th century Austrian Embassy located in central Paris on one of the grand boulevards. We placed the main working spaces on the first floor in the highly ornate rooms overlooking the boulevard. Acoustic engineering was a prime consideration. On this same level we designed public participation spaces and a large kitchen. The main public reception area is located on the first floor next to the great stairway.


On the ground floor which encompasses four sides of the main exterior courtyard we designed the arrival area, conference facilities, staff canteen, lounge facilities and a bicycle shed.


On one side of the courtyard we designed a contemporary apartment for Mozilla visitors.
The basement zone includes various other Mozilla facilities.
