Bouygues Telecom Headquarters office complex consists of a 24-story tower and two 8-story buildings in a campus like setting.
Arquitectonica designed the elliptical form to give the structure direction and multiple frontalities. There is no front or back, yet its directional quality conveys movement from Issy to Paris, from the streets to the peripherique, from land to river. Its soft shaped edges avoid hard corners, implying a democratic space and certain sensuality in its relationship to the green landscape that surrounds the building at its base.
This development bridges the border of Paris and Issy Les Moulineaux, near the River Seine. The buildings received an excellent score in the HQE Batiments Tertiaires certification process (high environmental quality in office buildings).
