Through sliding, the superimposed volumes successively revel three hotel complexes, offices and at roof level, a belvedere that caters to the general public or exceptional events. At each interface a double height, extended by a garden terrace overlooking the city, accommodates the hotel lobbies.

A double lift circuit, vertically extends the street space within the edifice to lead directly to each lobby and the belvedere, and then ensures access to intermediate floors of each hotel. Through its brief, its accessibility and architectural treatment, the Jardins de l’Arche Tower is like an open project that animates and intensifies the public space.
