A complex of buildings in the heart of the 'golden triangle' (the 75008 arrondissement of paris), close to the church of la Madeleine and Place de la Concorde. The project was conceived as spatial and technical innovation whose source of inspiration is the city's covered streets and promenades. The exteriors of the buildings are combined in such a way that observers' perception of space changes each time, creating an interior block street with three accesses and their corresponding addresses: 30, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré; 33-37, rue Boissy d'Anglas; and 3, rue de Surène. The façades are of clear glass and serigraphed glass, while the paving is of pietra serena.

programme: offices, shops, showroom, restaurant and bar, a multi-purpose hall, a gymnasium and parking space for 450 vehicles in the basement.
