Two poles together in an office building; The two programs form a continuous ribbon that unfolds and interlaces to form differentiated entities while creating a coherent and well-established architectural ensemble.
|Program||The city Water Services, a hotel and an incubator for startups|
|Site||Porte des lilas, Paris|
|Floor Area||10 250 m2|
|Cost of construction||29 230 000 €|

The ribbon consists of an essentially opaque section forming the roofs and the gabled walls whose color evolves gradually from black to white to affirm its continuity while differentiating the parts. Composed of aluminum composite panels, it integrates all the equipment needed for the production of passive energy (photovoltaic, solar panels) and also receives the vegetated areas necessary for the retention of rainwater. The vertical sections of the ribbon are treated in largely glazed curtain walls, protected by a wooden claustra skilfully designed to protect the sun while allowing the deployment of deciduous plantations which protect the most exposed facades in summer.
