Criteo – Global Transformation Project – Paris

The transformation of AdTech giant Criteo’s Paris HQ was a highlight of their Global Transformation Project, led by K2 Space. Criteo’s commitment to hybrid working post-pandemic required an innovative approach to the workplace’s functionality while also recognising the importance of aesthetics. Located at 32 Rue Blanche, a landmark building in the historic 9th arrondissement, Criteo’s HQ has been their home since the company’s inception and holds a special place in the heart of the organisation. In response to Criteo’s downsizing, close collaboration with the workforce was essential to design a supportive workplace that accommodates new ways of working while ensuring it remains distinctly Parisian yet unmistakably Criteo.

The workforce demanded close attention to the sustainability of the design, a challenge K2 Space was happy to accept. The project was characterised by bright, functional spaces, utilising innovative design, bold furniture choices, and sustainable methodologies and materials. The innovative use of functional artwork, such as the acoustic trees, helped divide the space and improved sound quality while injecting a bit of fun and softness into the overall design. The artwork also contributed to the localisation of the space, featuring cultural references and recognisable street art.

Criteo – Global Transformation Project – New York

The goal was to create a space that would support Criteo’s fully flexible working model, enhancing the experience of teams coming together for collaboration and social interaction while also accommodating employees who prefer regular office attendance and require more traditional resources. K2 Space’s redesign of Criteo’s New York office responded to the consolidation of four floors into a single 20,000 sq ft floorplate, resulting in a workplace that is 35% of its original size.

The project coincided with Criteo’s rebranding, enabling K2 Space to weave the new corporate identity into the design. The new shape vocabulary is evident in key areas such as the cafeteria and reception, immediately immersing visitors in Criteo’s vibrant culture.

In addition to economic and social benefits, the new space brought significant environmental advantages, including LED lighting replacing fluorescent bulbs, the extensive use of second-hand furniture, and sourcing local joinery to reduce carbon emissions. The project also incorporated unique features reflecting the company culture, like campfire meeting spaces and a curved tea point designed to encourage informal gatherings and collaboration. These elements not only elevate the office’s aesthetic appeal but also foster a sense of identity and cohesion in the workplace.
