Located on Boulevard Victor Hugo, the project is part of the dynamic city of Clichy, whose ambition is to create a large façade at the entrance to the city. The commercial building will mainly consist of offices and shops on the ground floor.
Clichy is aiming to make its city entrance project, a large urban façade, composed of signals inviting, from the periphery, as from the street, to the discovery of the entire city, punctuating with strong gestures the built front . The building is part of this dynamic which involves renovations and renovations of the architectural heritage of Clichy and new projects of quality.
The offices building United will mainly consist of offices and shops on the ground floor. The program, in the form of a “U”, will be articulated around an existing and preserved building. The objectives are to optimize the functionality of the project, to enhance the living and working areas and to implement an emblematic, sustainable and sustainable project. The project combines two strong figures – the signal and the existing urban scale – into a set of interwoven and dynamic volumes.
Each volume is expressed in different colors so that the project is not perceived as a monolithic object but as an “urban sculpture” which varies according to the angles of views from the city, Paris and the peripheral boulevard. Playing on the transparencies, this building with purified forms, presents, on the boulevard Victor Hugo, a very smooth facade. Silk screened white, it creates spaces of confidentiality and reflection, while giving to see the city in all its components. The other facades are more crystalline thus offering a kind of mirror to the city.
