Office buildings in Paris

These office buildings are situated in a recently urbanized part of Paris 12th district, alongside the rail-tracks just outside Gare de Lyon.
Two of these buildings limit a public place and the three of them board a small street. Their total surface is 13 500 m².
Beyond the fact of satisfying the rationality of office space, the architectural work consists of adding quality to this new part of the city.
Each of the facades creates conditions which enrich the urban experience. The size of the interventions is relative to the size of the city and goes beyond the common frame of office facades. Thus, urban events are created : colored panels mark out and distinguish the public square, the large awnings are spectacular and the plantations along the facades and inside the inner courtyard establish a landscaped continuity.
Each in its own way, these three buildings address the city’s public space and also form an ensemble. From a variation on a theme (the typical office building gridded facade) they give off the idea of a common game and constitute a singular place.
