The building is in a prime position at the intersection of the Quai du Point du Jour, du Pont d’Issy and between the CANAL+ and TF1 television stations, opposite the river Seine, with a 150 m south and west façade. Its restoration is a major project. The architects’ concept is to give the effect of a diamond on the street-facing façades and to make the back simple and uniform. VS-A is working on all the building’s façades. The work on the design economy of ventilated panels in an origami pattern, which consisted to some extent in reducing the size of the glass panes, reinforced the architectural image of the project.
