STUDIOS’ design for Highlight will make it an emblematic site in a newly renovated district along the Seine in Courbevoie.
The project entails bringing together three separate buildings built between 1960 and 1980 to create an open, interactive urban campus for the tertiary sector that will build ties between nature and the surrounding city.
The campus will be organized around a landscaped garden and composed of a 15-floor high-rise, a 9-floor office building and a 2-floor building housing the site’s dining facility. Upon completion, the project will also include a 7,000-square-meter long-stay hotel.
The high-rise will be expanded with an extension of the fifth floor and given a minimalist glass facade that will blend in perfectly with the surrounding skyline.
Highlighting timeless, bright atmosphere while being subtlety and elegant brings a feeling of unity to its different elements.
Making it a symbol of the neighborhood’s rebirth.
The entire campus is articulated around a courtyard garden that will serve as a tranquil haven for the site’s users.
Nature is present throughout, including in the site’s interior design. Common areas were inspired by the idea of a boat trip down the river, a blend of plant and mineral elements brought together by the flowing movement of, and myriad glints of light on, water.
An open, interactive urban campus that will build ties between nature and city.
