It is the nearness of the park that inspired the architecture of the building. The observation of the structure of the trees has driven to the concept of this innovative façade.
That is to say a more structured façade at the base, analogy to the tree trunk which becomes more and more filigreed in the upper levels, as tree branches.
This is what gives its grace to this pure and elegant building.
The Boulevard Royal is a place were Luxemburg sandstone has a good place, shall it be on historical houses or more contemporary buildings. We have opted for a golden dominant structure which reminds this warm language from the sandstone.
