Refurbishment of a flagship shopping centre on the outskirts of Paris, in a comprehensive operation to adapt the facilities to current requirements and to present a new exterior image by means of volume and materials. The building has been dismantled to achieve a more urban scale, giving rise to a set of new volumes and façades that combine different materials and treatments. The roofs have been modified, and the original height has been altered, raising them to allow natural light to enter and creating new skylights. The communal areas are enlarged, creating three environments differentiated by colors and lighting. Accesses and walkways have also been rationalized, to create new meeting points for visitors.
