Built in 1975 by architects Jean De Mailly and Robert Zammit, the Ariane Tower is now undergoing a transformation to improve its thermal and energy performance.

This transformation process, in line with the objectives of the Paris La Défense business district, is part of an ESG and sustainable development approach undertaken by its owner and supported by all those involved in this project, while preserving the identity of the Ariane Tower.

The tower's assets highlighted

The thermal renovation adapts to the new challenges of the 21st century. It will make it possible to highlight the main characteristics of the tower, such as its windows, its shape, its height and its concrete structure. Thanks to the replacement of obsolete glazing, the new façade will offer improved natural light transmission and will highlight the raw materiality of the base and attic.

Improved use of the tower

The project also includes the redesign of the reception areas overlooking the Esplanade Charles de Gaulle. The current entrance pavilion (dismantled and reused) will be rebuilt to offer new services to the tower's occupants, and its external facilities will be redesigned to improve their use. Interior works will complete the renovation programme, with the creation of meeting spaces and an auditorium to enhance the services offered by the Ariane Tower.

Work schedule

  • Renovation of the base: July 2022 to September 2023
