Architect: Atelier Christian de Portzamparc Location: Paris, France Client: GEREC Project Area: 8,500 sqm Project Year: 2003-2009 Photographs: Patrycja Ogonowska

Located on Wagram avenue, this new hotel is located right where the Empire Theater used to be. The facade is characterized by undulating horizontal glazed bands. This great glass plaiting accommodates the rooms´ bow windows to free sight towards the Étoile and the Ternes. The two lower levels accommodate the boutiques as well as a large porch, which opens onto a court garden and leads to the Salle Wagram.

In parallel with this program, Christian de Portzamparc was also entrusted with the facade of the Salle. Previously the entrance to the Salle Wagram was not visible from the street; access was via a small hidden corridor along the side of the Empire Theatre to enter the entrance hall of the Salle. It therefore seemed obvious to offer a window from the street into the heart of the island.
