A new kind of offices.
At the very center of the Grand Paris but along the Boulevard Périphérique, Paris’ ring road, the project follows a double matrix.
On the vertical level, the Parisian traditional first floor is clearly emphasized: open to the city, and anticipating the progressively peaceful ring road.
Horizontally, it is divided in a series of tridimensional blocks of different heights and widths, allowing various roof terraces.
From the exterior, its ever-changing facade gives an elegant touch to this 170 meter-long building, while blocks reflect light and weather in various angles.
Inside, the flexibility of its spaces makes it relevant to any kind of uses: its structure is set according to a rational grid where structural facades free inner spaces.
