The context offered a very interesting subject for research to the architects' practice. The project consisted of reconstructing a building located on an angle aigu corner, part of a six-branch starshape crossroads system, with a dominant position, and possibilities of views over the top of surroundings. The narrow plot links diverse architectural styles and building hights, on either side and benefits of large visibility. The cubist and pyramidal composition, expressed in the three nested volumes whose lines fit in with the various building outlines of neighbours, offers a very proud ensemble.
