Typical of the architecture of La Défense, the mode of implantation of the Platanes ensures continuity between the site and the centre of Puteaux. With its H-shaped plan and light brown glazed sandstone tile facades, the building resembles the buildings of the 1970s.
A word about the architect
Georges Rophé (1925) was a regular visitor to apartment buildings and sports facilities. He devoted a large part of his career, which began after the Second World War, to the towns of Meudon-la-Forêt (Hauts-de-Seine) and Montigny-le-Bretonneux (Yvelines). The residence of the Platanes is his only achievement in La Défense.
