In the Faubourg Saint-Antoine neighbourhood of Paris, which has to some extent kept its original character of fairly narrow sites, rational dimensions, modest street-front constructions, workshops at the back of courtyards, the trilogy of this programme (laboratories, offices, hotel residence) presented an opportunity to organise the imposing Quinze-Vingts hospital complex built in the 1970s and the buildings inherited from a heterogenous past.
The office building thereby chooses the discretion of the workshop outline, the hotel residence that of a standard apartment building, while the laboratories adopt an emblematic image evoking the research activities conducted therein. An image provided by a curtain wall formed of panels of white “printed” glass, whose visual and tactile perception changes with the reliefs found in them and the light they reflect. This monumental decorative-glass window (which draws its inspiration from the creative world of colourless decorative-glass such as that from the workshop of master glazier Louis Barillet) covers the entire volume of the building, dictated by a strict respect of the alignments, heights, party walls and dimensions imposed by regulations.
