Ilot Fontenoy-Segur – Paris
Architectural Mesh for Solar Shading at the French Prime Ministers Office
Ilot Ségur Fontenoy is a 53,000 m² real estate complex dating back to the 1930s that enjoys an exceptional location in the heart of the 7th arrondissement of Paris, between the UNESCO building, the Ministry of Health and the Ecole Militaire.
The building underwent a complete renvoation with the main objective to improve upon the way it works by connecting the two Ségur and Fontenoy buildings. A new part, called the "bridge building" was also created to connect these buildings and now houses shared meeting rooms.
Our Alpine 48 architectural mesh was chosen to externally cover 800 windows and be mounted to a electronic roller system. The designers and architect Braun et Associes Architectes created a visually stunning and modern design for the windows whilst retaining the overall look of the building.
