From the architect. In a small site, surrounded by Industrial buildings, RH+Architectes designed this office building for the Paris Transport Company (RATP) with a combination of 2 different volumes: A translucent and light first floor, and an opaque black volume on top with a great overhang, creating a sheltered terrace on the underground.
