  • Colliers International France and Gensler have completed the design of the new head offices of Estée Lauder, located in Paris, France.

    After London, Estée Lauder is deploying its head office model in Paris, and more particularly in Neuilly-sur-Seine, where the group’s 400 employees are located on 4,200 m².

    Co-developed with American interior designer Gensler, this European headquarters serves as a “pilot” for the group’s other headquarters. The objective is to define the conditions for success and identify the risks to develop their other organizations around the world.

    For Estée Lauder, changing headquarters means moving away from the Haussmann style and the individual office, breaking down barriers and bringing employees together to switch to flex-office.

    This new site offers its employees a hybrid working environment (flex office and closed spaces). Once the door is opened, the employee enters a luxurious, bright and connected environment.

    The challenge for Colliers International France was to support Estée Lauder throughout this transformation project, with an important image challenge: the building becomes a production tool and reinforces the brand image.

    Combining furniture quality, natural light, space comfort, greater efficiency, better collaboration: the headquarters is a showcase to reinforce the brand image, and thus attract and retain talent and be a model for the group’s other headquarters.
