Located to the north of the new judicial city of Paris, leaning against the new Palais de Justice, whose base it extends and erected on the edge of the ring road, this tertiary building stands out, guaranteeing its commercial success.
Icade's ambitions are strong, to build an R+7 wooden building, drawing its energy from geothermal energy to reach the E+C label - rarely achieved for a tertiary building.
The test is transformed here. A mixed wood-concrete structure is proposed. A couple of materials everywhere, on the facade as well as in the interior spaces.
The inflection of the building, dictated by the land boundary, gives it a dynamic in dialogue with the flows of the peripheral.
The façade displays a checkerboard of wood, glass and metal with brass tones, evoking the carving of a piece of silversmith's work.
A unique giant work, carved in low relief on the east gable like a punch, signals the equipment from the road network.
The building houses a new generation tertiary program that is open to today's working methods. Many third places, from the ground floor to the summit, open onto the city and its unique context.
