In 2030, the city of Paris will be able to breathe again. In osmosis with the climate, the wind, the light, the Montparnasse tower will be a tower of its time.” Super-passive “, raised to the rank of the most efficient of buildings, it will even surpass them, in terms of its carbon footprint, through the reuse of a large part of the resources necessary for its reconstruction.
The facade is based on two concepts, which evolve accros the different heights of the tower and to either side of the suspended garden:
The first ten floors of offices are enriched with winter gardens and equipped with access to the outside on filant balconies. These spaces bring an almost domestic dimension to the low-rise offices and give them an urban character, creating a dialogue with the surroundings. They also reduce the effect of wind at the foot of the tower to improve urban comfort in the neighbourhood.
The other element that goes towards improving public space by modifying the morphology of the existing elements is the digging of large patios with trees at the four corners. By anchoring the Tower more deeply into the Parisian soil, they diminish the “down wash” wind effect, bring comfort to the slab and helping to direct pedestrians between Rue de Rennes and the future station. The wind tower, this “Eole-Montparnasse” tower, is a tower that takes care of us, both inside and outside.
