The office building, located on the corner of rue Boileau and rue Bourbon, is 18m deep. The ribbon that it constitutes folds at the corner of the two streets. A caesura in its template echoes the fault lines developed on a scale with the plot. This gap allows the dwellings to have views of a landscaped terrace.
The entire building is treated in natural anodized aluminum or glossy white lacquer. This skin, which protects the external insulation, is treated in perfect continuity with the roof, which folds along the line of the facade. The resulting continuity gives the whole a sculptural appearance. On the ground floor, the hall provides an opening onto Rue Boileau. It combines with the vertical caesura to raise the building and makes for clear, easy access. All the frames and sashes are lacquered in brown, as are the fault lines and vertical caesura.
Like a fruit whose skin would protect the flesh, this brown color appears as soon as the monolith opens out. Attic offices emphasize a recess, giving way to terraces protected by the continuous roof. In contrast, the regular proportions of the openings highlight the volume’s geometrical variations.
