Since the urban excesses of the seventies, Paris has been struggling with skyscrapers. But now, a new high-rise building emerged, which can be presented without doubt. The Architects Hamonic + Masson and Comte et Vollenweider show that the new residential building, which breaks the mark of 50 meters, is innovative and attractive. In the 13th arrondissement near the highway, the project with its mix of ownership and rental stock belongs to the developing area ZAC Rive Gauche. BY being divided in several sections, it provides a high-density structure with well-known neighbour buildings by Christian de Portzamparc, Norman Foster and Ricardo Bofill. All 200 apartments have spacious balconies or terraces. These are secured by a golden colored stainless steel mesh of CARL STAHL ARCHITECTURE named X-TEND Colour. Thanks to the high transparency of the mesh, contemporary living with more light, air and sun, even in the city center is possible.
