Play International

Guillemette Petit, Director of Play, inaugurated the new workspace with these words:

'We observe that our teams are happy to come together, and these new offices create a beautiful synergy, it's fantastic!'

So, as you can imagine, nothing makes us happier than the enthusiasm of our clients.

But by the way, what is PLAY International? This incredible NGO uses sports and games as tools to promote education, inclusion, and well-being.

In 25 years of action, Play has trained more than 18,000 education professionals and reached over 1 million beneficiaries in particularly high-risk areas such as Haiti, Bolivia, or even Afghanistan.

The main challenge of this project was to create, within a tight budget, a space that embodies Play's DNA and values while offering the best working and exchange conditions for the NGO. We have:

  • Invested in a 'sporty' reinterpretation of their identity for the floor and walls,
  • Created spaces tailored to all needs and audiences (concentration, training, collaborative work),
  • Established a warm kitchen, a true space for internal living and exchanges.

Finally, a large part of the existing furniture was upcycled or reused, and we donated furniture for meeting spaces. Our engineer Gaston-Pierre Borderie even repurposed old climbing holds from his club as decorations.

We wish a long life to Play International, congratulations to Guillemette Petit and her entire team for their actions! Congratulations also to AFD - French Development Agency, which actively supports this NGO.

A big thank you to Tiphaine Serret de Mauraige who initiated the project, as well as the project team: Clara Loiseau, Gaston-Pierre Borderie, Thomas Deshayes, and Justine Bertier, who led this project in record time with passion.
