STUDIOS’ mission is to design an iconic real estate site in a complex environment at the edge of La Défense, between the RER train tracks and the Boulevard Circulaire.

The site, which faces the surrounding neighborhood, includes a tertiary-use building from the 1970s and a superstructure parking garage below the Boulevard Circulaire.

To update the site, give it a human dimension and create a transition with its environment, STUDIOS has designed a transparent base that will matche the future layout determined by EPADESA, the public institution responsible for planning and management of Paris La Défense.


A site that will use a contemporary, fluid architectural vocabulary to interact with its environment.

Latitude’s architectural vocabulary will give the building a strong identity and will make it stand out in a rapidly evolving neighborhood.

The white composite waves of Latitude’s facade will create a feeling of movement and lightness that will echo the traffic flowing along the Boulevard Circulaire.

To make Highlight a veritable destination, STUDIOS also developed a range of multi-faceted activities for the site’s base to attract users with a host of services often lacking in La Défense.
