Project description: This project, a few minutes away from Place de la Bastille, lies in a very dense urban environment. The challenge was to find a balance between the strong identity of the building and its integration into the existing context.
The façade, spread over three vertical volumes and punctuated by metal poles, gives the building scope and echoes the district’s industrial past. This rhythm is underlined by the use of curved glass on the façade, which also increases the penetration of natural light in working areas. The terrazzo base provides a raw feeling to the facade and brings contrast, whilst anchoring the building in its surroundings.
Great attention is paid to the common areas which are distinguished by a careful design that promotes discussion. The garden and green rooftops offer convivial spaces from which to enjoy the panoramic view of the Place de la Bastille and Paris as a whole.
