Grande Armée – l1ve

The restructuring project makes it possible to reinforce a strong architectural gesture – this is the basic idea behind the renovation of the late-modern Peugeot headquarters near the Arc de Triomphe. The Grande Armée – l1ve project offers the central Parisian urban space an exciting 110-meter-long facade.

Its existing concrete structure forms the backdrop for an energy-optimised window system. Rhythm, plasticity, and self-imposed order combine to create a strong physiognomy. But the project with 33.434 m2 GFA achieves more: simple materials, neutral utilisation of space and the acceptance of the architecture stand for the longevity of the building. Flexible office structures and generous open spaces combine to create a working environment that harmonises with the attractive greenery. The project also shows that refurbishing the existing building saves valuable resources. A total of 5.615 tones of building fabric was removed and 92 percent was recycled.
