Between is part of the Miroirs complex (multi-owner building). It is located along the Boulevard Circulaire, and underwent a major renovation in 2013 and 2014 after the departure of Atos Origin, its former occupant. Between's renovation has moreover enabled its owner to obtain the BBC Rénovation label in October 2014! The building's facade was lined from the inside and all technical equipment and architectural trades were selected to meet the label's requirements.
A word about the architect
Before becoming an architect, Henri La Fonta first tried his hand at sculpture and painting. However, his training at the Camondo School led him to architecture. He gained his first experience in 1951 in Morocco as a collaborator and then returned to Paris in the 1960s.
In 1977, he founded his own agency, which quickly made a name for itself thanks to the creativity and conceptual rigor he demonstrated in his work. In La Défense, Henri La Fonta was, from the 1980s, the main instigator of the renewal of office buildings. The business district owes him Les Miroirs as well as the Pascal and Voltaire towers.
