LOCATION: Villeneuve-la-Garenne, France

ARCHITECT: Roux Ingénierie / P. Pierrou – DGLA, France
CONTRACTOR: SMAC, France
DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT:
THE NEED: A gigantic project in Villeneuve-la-Garenne boasts 250,000 m² of developed surface and 86,000 m² of leasable space along the Seine, with five floors and three parking areas, in a district calling out for renewal. The complex, triangular site is squeezed in between major thoroughfares and required powerful architecture.
THE DANPAL SOLUTION: The principle behind the project is that of a triangular mall with two crossing malls that form a window on the Seine side, and overlook the city on the other. Each wall of the mall expresses a particular relationship to the city. On the Seine side, the iridescent Danpal® wall is laid out in successive waves that overlap and are lit in pulsations. At night, the luminous lighting resembles the flowing of water.
THE RESULT: Initially designed as backlighting, the ultimate solution features outdoor LED lighting, with a light scenario that changes over time. On this side of the mall, the unique light and shape makes the wall really stand out.
