We thought of this hotel as a succession of plans and sequences condensing the long traveling shot that leads the traveler to Paris. The access to the hotel is from a reception on the roof of the city, a place from which one can apprehend the opposite way, understand Paris, this open territory which unfolds in a limitless continuum, whose The white horizon is punctuated by magnificent emergences. Our project will be a place characterized, surprising, a destination, a landmark, connivance, a point of view on the capital.
The volumetry of the building contributes to the affirmation of a device destined to become an inhabited urban boulevard, a metropolitan landscape. Also the envelope built fits into a perfectly defined template. The volumetry is thought in continuity of the project of the business hotel of Zundel and Cristea. In the manner of an open book, the architectonic elements are put in correspondence, inscribed in a same alignment: the pedestal is perfectly extended, as are the generators that define the ridge, the recesses or the attic figures.
We organized the programs by stacking them so that they could be deployed in large planes entirely dedicated to a single use. Thus the building unfolds in height in a succession of plans of a great clarity of space.
The different trays are articulated around a central technical space. The organization of the various plans borrows from the tertiary model a rigorous and effective device, both from a spatial and a technical point of view. The center, largely dimensioned, is devoted to fluids and vertical circulations, releasing large surfaces perfectly modular, with a very high valuation of facades. The trays are thus totally clear of any bulky item. The plans are simple, rational, the identification is easy; At each level, at the ends of the circulations, large framing on the city bring in much natural light into the horizontal distribution spaces.
