The architect is not an unknown person in Cognac, as he designed and built the cultural center of Hennessy, in 1996. Standing on a former Hennessy production site on the river bank, the building called “Les Quais” is a delicate balance of white stone, glass and oak, with a copper roof reminiscent ot the stills. The future BNIC headquarters will be built at around 500 meters of “Les Quais”
