OXyGen in La Défense

Paris Mixed-Use Building and Landscape Development – design by Stephane Malka Architecture

3 Mar 2016

OXyGen Building

Design: Stephane Malka Architecture

Location: La Défense, Paris, France

OxyGen is the winning project for the developement of La Défense’s Vignes area. OxyGen is a door, a physical and visual input penetrating from the tracks and the banks of Neuilly sur Seine.

OxyGen Building

This bow is a reception for Le Grand Parvis’s promenade . The slab is mineral, and we propose to finish the walk by a wide and generous flower garden connected to new restaurants and surrounded by many open terraces , covered or outdoors . The design of the master plan will play an important role in our project, not only because of the user’s well-being and flow management, but also because it is noticeable from the towers all around. It’ll be an invitation to visually discover the many places . This ” picture ” then offers a landscape in constant evolution.

Inspired by the tradition of romantic gardens of the 19th century, we wish to recreate green areas while remaining contemporary. A kind of vegetal Tivoli with different varieties of bushes and grasses but also large vegetated cavities of different sizes to invite people to shelter from the sun, rain and wind if weather requires so.

As well, restaurants and open kiosks are entirely prefabricated in workshops to be delivered in kit on site, without any noise or pollution for local residents, office workers and surrounding hotel’s residents. Kiosks are dispersed throughout the park, and will be both terraces and stroll areas.

The architectural and landscape design of the project does not dissociates any element of the site. Indeed, ground treatments stretch in kiosks and extend tto the park and restaurants, for an unfiltered experience on two levels.
Thus, La Defense bow is transformed, and opens a “camouflage” park, a blend between Architecture and Landscape, with an inhabited bridge opened on the Seine: a new playground for both La Defense and Paris.
