06 PARIS SIDE BY SIDE

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

Paris-based Arte Char­p­en­tier Architectes has com­pleted two dis­tinct ho­tels for the ACCOR group on a 4100-square me­tre plot in the Rois­sypôle busi­ness district of the French cap­i­tal. An Ibis Styles ho­tel is home to 308 rooms while a Pull­man Ho­tel ac­com­mo­dates 305 rooms. The space be­tween the two struc­tures is par­tially pro­tected by petal-shaped glass, cre­at­ing a con­ve­nient meet­ing space, while both ho­tels’ re­cep­tion ar­eas and restau­rants are glassed, pro­vid­ing guests and din­ers with views of the out­side. Thou­sands of LEDs light up both build­ings, cre­at­ing eye-catch­ing lines along the two façades, while the ar­chi­tects also land­scaped the pub­lic spa­ces.
