    • The Agency

      The agency is situated Rue Saint-Sabin, in the 11th arrondissement of Paris. It is set up in a former art gallery close to the modern art district of Paris and is structured into two sections. A first space bathed in natural light opens onto the street. This space is dedicated to meetings, brainstorming and the presentation of projects; it is also occasionally used to host social events and temporary exhibitions. This first area communicates with the open space that gives onto the courtyard, a workspace where the team gets together. This layout reflects our philosophy at Agent M, favouring cross-disciplinary reflection that federates diverse creative personalities and promotes a connected, flexible, and friendly work method.
