Calypso: a new tool for the Crédit Agricole Atlantique Vendée in Nantes

Calypso, the new Campus by CA building on Route de Paris in Nantes saw its new inhabitants move in in October. It follows on from Nosica, the headquarters of the Crédit Agricole Atlantique Vendée Regional Bank, which was also designed by AIA Life Designers and delivered in 2015.

With Calypso, Crédit Agricole Atlantique Vendée is uniting its various activities on a single site – until now scattered throughout the Nantes metropolitan area – and giving clarity to the group’s multi-business nature.

Calypso also offers a space specific to innovation, the “Village by CA”, a space for meetings, networking and acceleration bringing together start-ups and partners.
