This redevelopment of the Terrasses Boieldieu's overall objective was to connect the square in front of La Défense to the terraces in an environment vegetated pleasant in this sector is mixed, composed of offices, shops and homes. Challenge that needed to level the whole area and redesign the flooring, both to improve the air-tightness to standardize the spaces.
The access to the district have therefore been reworked, a lift installed to connect the spaces located on and under the slab, and the access to cyclists or people with reduced mobility facilities. In addition, a gateway created between the parvis de La Défense and the centre of the city of Puteaux, offers a journey in a gentle slope. It allows the organization of occasional activities and events or hosting sports activities contributing to the social life of the district, as well as a shared garden and tackle sports. Finally, a public lighting on poles, shaving LED or integrated with the urban furniture, gives the Terrasses Boieldieu one side more warm and friendly, conducive to a real neighbourhood life.
