Groupama launches the metamorphosis of his building Window
Launched in early March by its owner Groupama, the building's renovation works Elysee former Defense must be completed within 21 months. This is the US agency KPF has been chosen to redesign the building renamed Window that will develop 45,092 m² of offices and services.





[B]Nestled on the roof of the shopping center Les 4 Temps, the building Appointed until recently Elysee La Défense will know a significant change. Its owner Groupama launched early March the renovation work of this iconic neighborhood building, completed in 1982 and located in the "golden triangle of Defense" in his words. The French insurer has entrusted the metamorphosis of this great building of 45,092 m² (38,500 m² of workspace) to the US Agency KPF architecture to whom we owe already the First and CBX towers (eg Dexia) and SRA French agency. The project cost amounted to 120 million euros.

Renamed Window (after a while Zephyr), this large boat-glass and concrete is one of the largest horizontal surface area with a dimension of 150 meters long and 50 meters wide with a height of seven levels. Nicknamed "Skyscraper ground" by its architect, this elongated tower is indeed not classified as IGH standard allowing its owner and its future tenants significant savings. "This allows the tenant to a saving of costs of € 20 / m² / year" explains Astrid Weill, the director of development and major projects at Groupama, is not less than € 770,000 for all 38 500 m² of office . What a good sales argument put forward Groupama in addition to the exceptional position of Window.

Completely deserted its last occupants since 2013 and 2014, the building that hosted over the years Citibank, Usinor (now ArcelorMittal) and more recently Gan Eurocourtage and Auchan is now almost entirely priest and asbestos removal.

Only still the glass facade green tone that will be made during construction. It will be completely replaced with a new skin whiter and bluish color. Transparent, it will let more light into the building. The new Window envelope will not planar as the current but made of vertical glass slides slightly bevelled with folds up to 4.50 meters at the two atria. Considered the "fifth facade" The roof of the building will be constructed with a green terrace.

^ if you can't perceive a brand new facade as such, then I wonder what you're doing on a constructions / architecture forum.

Well if you look closer to it, you can see the materials are new, but mostly I just scroll trought he threads.

On first sight it just looked like boring brown office building escaped from the 70's.

I have nothing against the onion domes common in Russian and it's realm of influence--in fact, I love the look of the Kremlin and the many churches that feature that style of dome, but I'm not sure I like it so close to the Eiffel Tower. Oh well, they hated the Eiffel Tower when it was first built and now it's so popular. I guess things change, including Paris near the Eiffel Tower.

Sure, the 'bulbs' will now be part of Paris landscape. They'll be very visible. And I'm glad for this, the shape and the color look nice, not too goldish.

19th

..Buren's work is also visible at the 104 (ex parisian undertaker's center, now a cultural center) in the 19th arrondissement, in the occuli (it's temporary too) :


Near the 104, the new Rosa Park RER station is opened since late december (but was only officially inaugurated in february) :


..and so there is now a large space which allows to see the entrepots MacDonalds in their biggest extension :
