Groundbreaking held in Paris for Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed PDM 3 office block

Construction is underway on Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF) PDM 3 commercial building in Paris. The building, located in the Parc du Millénaire, along the northern edge of the principal ring road encircling metropolitan Paris (the Boulevard Périphérique), will be occupied solely by the Ministry of Justice. The highly visible structure will serve as one of the public faces of the larger Parc Du Millénaire development.

The 8-storey office building is situated between the northern edge of the Boulevard Périphérique to the south and the navigable canal Saint Denis to the north that serves an additional connection to the site via public ferry. A new and well-utilised shopping centre lies directly across the canal. This site establishes a connection between Paris and the suburbs through a strong visual presence and an exemplary sustainable development. The building will be linked to the 19th Arrondissement to the south by means of an unprecedented footbridge spanning the Périphérique.

According to KPF Design Principal, James von Klemperer: “The building’s geometric forms and the subtle variations in the way that each of its sides addresses its surroundings were carefully chosen to acknowledge both the speed and motion of the Périphérique to the south, and the quieter canal environs to the north. In this way, the building acts as a connective element between the two disparate urban conditions, and helps the city to take a major step towards the further maturing of this district.”

A generous central courtyard draws natural light into the heart of the building and provides a welcoming communal gathering space for the building users. In addition, in order to achieve the best possible visual and thermal performance within the clients strict budget requirements, a great deal of effort was put into standardising façade components despite the apparent uniqueness of each individual façade. Multi-storey urban windows, strategically carved out of the south facades, offer a glimpse of the activity housed within to travellers along the Périphérique, and provide tenants with a series of dramatic interior spaces.

PDM 3 is designed to fully comply with HQE, BREAM (Excellent), and LEED (Gold) certifications of sustainability. The south façade, on the Périphérique Blvd. side, has a ratio of 50% opacity to meet the environmental constraints of the southern exposure. The breathable double skin acts as a thermal buffer. The clear inner layer allows natural light to penetrate and a more reflective outer glass unifies the appearance of the façade. The opaque vertical portion is clad with coloured fins, folded from base to top. Each fin is sliced diagonally at its base to emphasise a dynamic effect.

I think Paris is a beautiful city but I'm not so keen on most of these modern projects going up. To me they seem to be different for the sake of being different and don't integrate particularly well with their surroundings.
