Text description provided by the architects. Winner of a March 2011 competition hosted by the Paris Airports, on a 4 102 m² space, Arte Charpentier Architectes has designed two distinct hotels for the Accor group: a building housing an ibis Styles (308 rooms) hotel and a building for the prestigious Pullman (305 rooms) chain.

In front of the «Aéroport Charles-de-Gaulle 1» RER A exit, they have been drawn in the same motion and offer an innovative architectural design. The two buildings’ facades have been treated in the same way:

- The color and materials have been picked for their brightness

- Silk-screened glass partially covers the glassing, drawing an aesthetic and modern checker board pattern. An optical illusion is thus created along the buildings’ frames.

- Thousands of LEDs create lines along the facades; they light the buildings up day and night.

The interspace between the hotels makes a friendly court partially protected by glass shaped petal flowers, real catalyst of the urban life.

Data volumes are subtly fragmented to break with the extremely dense nature of a program of this magnitude. The fluidity of the structure’s lines and curves also participate to that goal of lightening the frame. As a part of the project the firm also designed the landscapes, from gardening to soil treatment and public spaces.

The hotels create a strong visual impact, making this project a real «urban door». They help visitors orientate themselves while renewing Roissypole’s image.
