Entry Description

We envisioned a unique hospitality experience in a refurbished 1970’s Parisian tower, for the staff and guests of GCI. The 11-metre Glazed atrium is the focal point of the architectural landscape, our overall design philosophy focused on creating a hospitable environment which would be visible from the offices above and a sculptural focal point at it’s centre. The existing brutal architecture of concrete and steel comes in great contrast with the softer use of coloured fabrics and textures such as clean white lacquered panels, natural oak, Italian marbles and leathers.
