ECOLOGY - ERGONOMICS - TECHNOLOGY
The development project of the Porte Montmartre district brings together new challenges in the development of the Parisian metropolis:
in some brownfield sites and wasteland areas, between Maréchaux and the Périphérique, densifying, rebuilding and restructuring a unique area of the Paris Couronne which merges seamlessly with Saint Ouen.
bringing together sustainable development, spatial planning and architecture, in high density clusters of varied use
creating spaces and venues that meet the needs of residents and users, lively, attractive places, accessible to all, in an environment of strong anti-nuisances measures.
Above all, choice of functional organization; we have analysed what the hotel supply in a metropolis like Paris should be today.
We wish to use the architectural response to highlight a hotel supply which combines urban integration and sustainable development with customer comfort and quality of service.
Even more than comfort we want to offer the customer a visibly obvious quality environment (water /air/ light), a feeling of an eco-stay and of eco responsibility.
Architecture and architectural quality are right at the heart of this reflection and we can develop it according to three cross-cutting drivers: ECOLOGY - ERGONOMICS - TECHNOLOGY.
The role of the sound barrier of plot 6 is widely discussed in the schedule, its built volume, which backs up onto the green wall of the slope of the Périphérique, will ensure that the centre of this cluster will be protected.
It goes without saying that users, customers and the staff of the building must also be protected.
The north face, the Périphérique side, will therefore offer this symbolic role, a facade of protection perceived on a grand scale, at high speed and which will contrast with the south facade, at the centre of the cluster, which more open and "homely".
Our building, a worthy representative of one of Paris’s "Portes", will also play the role of signal: on the corner of avenue Porte de Montmartre and the Boulevard Peripherique, at its greatest height, the 31 metres authorized by the PLU will be visible and marked.
