An effort to “extend the great historical axis of Paris,” the 65,000-square-meter tower will feature a series of hanging gardens around superimposed volumes.
At each interface a double height, extended by a garden terrace overlooking the city, accommodates the hotel lobbies. A double lift circuit vertically extends the street space within the edifice to lead directly to each lobby and the belvedere, and then ensures access to intermediate floors of each hotel - described the architects.
In total, the tower will feature a 700-bed hotel, swimming pool, spa, conference center, viewpoint, restaurants, offices, co-working space, fab-lab space, and fitness space.
The design considers sustainability, and aims for several certifications, like BREEAM Excellent, LEED Gold, and HQE Excellent.
