Long Description:
[FR] Il offre un label BBC Effinergie et une double certification HQE/excellent et BREEAM/very good.

La DÉfense Autrement marque une rupture avec les codes architecturaux qui ont façonné depuis 50 ans le premier quartier d’affaires européen.

Privilégiant la visibilité, l’accessibilité et la qualité de vie, le projet dessiné par l’agence architecturale Foster + Partners s’inscrit dans cette volonté de concevoir un nouveau cadre de travail.

Transparence, douceur des courbes, parfaite intégration au tissu urbain proche, tout a été pensé pour façonner une nouvelle esthétique capable de répondre aux nouvelles aspirations des usagers.

[EN] The buildings are designed to be highly sustainable and target double HQE certification and BREEAM ‘very good’.

To reduce energy consumption, around half of the large office building’s façade is opaque. The system incorporates innovative pantographic panels at every three-metre structural bay, and the ventilated double-skin to the south and west is complemented by simpler, double-glazed facades to the north and east.
