The 180 meter high office tower serves as the focal point for the east of Paris in the new urban development of the XIII arrondissement. The tower consists of five city blocks of only six stories each, cantilevered from two vertical cores with open space between the volumes. Each block has an open inner court and vast roof gardens. In this way, a new type of green urban skyscraper has been developed that combines the quality of a low-rise urban fabric with the potential of high-rise tower. The foot of the tower has a hotel and shopping center, as well as ten underground parking levels.

The Film Theatre Hilversum consists of three cinemas. The glass frontage merges the foyer with the public space outside. The supporting frame is built in laminated wood, and organizes the foyer into a number of cosy niches where audience members can enjoy a drink before the film. The volume of the theatre nestles under a bend in a vehicle ramp. On this side its facade is opaque with a scaly cladding of fibre-cement sheeting.
