Euralille

During the blitz visit to Lille, we also visited Euralille in addition to Maison Stéphane Hessel from JDS Architects. The tower was the last building in the first part of this business district. The neighborhood itself was designed in 1998 by OMA. The building is also in a strategic location, where there are different intersections. As a result, the architects chose to use a geometry that is related to the environment.

Copper

The program has been set up flexibly by the Paris architectural office. Each floor is organized around a central core, connected to all serving spaces. The windows are also adapted to this, they are bands of glass that form a wide panorama. The rest of the facade is made of copper plates. Sometimes perforated with windows behind it, which are only visible at night when the light is on.
