Description

A 1970s building that has been demolished, except for the four underground parking levels, and then fully rebuilt with a new building at the heart of Paris’ “Golden Triangle”.

The new building consists of two parts, with the main building on avenue de Friedland and an extension at the rear consisting of a series of terraces nestled between two gardens. This block to the rear gives access to a cafeteria and meeting rooms. The roofs are fully covered in greenery with large lawns, some of which can be accessed along pathways made from mineral materials and which serve as outdoor terraces.

What is most unusual about this building is its distinct origami facade consisting of a guardrail of composite panels made up of silk-screen slabs, based on a unique model that resembles marble. It is all assembled on double laminated glass that allows light to pass through, so the premises enjoy an exceptional degree of luminosity.
