The signage project:
Within the health sector, the Roche Laboratory was installed in the Horizon Tower, à Boulogne-Billancourt, signed by the architect Jean Nouvel. The Roche company occupies approximately 15,000m2 of workspace conditioned by the DEGW agency. The interior signage programming has been carried out from plans for the organization of the work spaces. The analysis of the internal circulation flows and the connections between the different levels and services, allowed to define the programming of the general signage respecting the graphic identity of the property. The signage typology is complete and hierarchical: exterior and interior logos made of cut-out micro-sandblasted aluminum objects, tactile plans of exterior and interior accesses, directional signposts of lifts, local directories, directional and identification elements ("open space", special door plates), decor of partition walls, projecting signs, bulletin boards for internal information and various use of pictograms.
The accessibility of the building has been treated by “full access” signage, taking into account: installation height, contrasts, visibility, legibility and comprehension, universal pictograms, transcription in Braille writing and use of raised characters.
For the management of emergency signs, evacuation plans, intervention plans and safety instructions in the event of fire, they have been manufactured by marcal following the guidelines of current standards (NF X08-070 and NF EN ISO 710): These devices will inform users of the exit routes in case of evacuation and the instructions to follow in the event of fire. The pictograms indicate the location of the fire fighting elements, fire alarms, fire extinguishers, fire hose, fire doors to keep closed or other particular instructions: technical room, access restriction and no exits routes. The Sécurité© range provides a specific response to these signage needs.
