The project for J.C Decaux Headquarters, at the intersection of two streets lined with diverse buildings, addressed the opportunity to mark with a clear gesture the importance of a corner in the urban landscape.
This office stone-clad building wraps around an inner courtyard garden. The six storeys of office space benefit from a double-skin glass system achieving a unique relationship between the interior and exterior environments by enclosing vegetation. Horizontal bands of golden metal define the vertical rhythms, and the corner is anchored by a round tower.
