[Press] “Paris La Défense selects architecturestudio as urban project manager for the Demi-Lune site”, Cadre de Ville

The project, which covers 1.5 hectares, is part of our blue approach and aims to give concrete expression to our environmental ambitions; to promote links between La Défense, Puteaux and Nanterre; and to make the urban area a low-carbon space that is pleasant to live in, in particular by reducing the presence of infrastructure.

This approach will make it possible to stimulate the interfaces to regenerate, from an invisible piece of land – an underused and heavily waterproofed wasteland – a future district that will create sensitive experiences that value the existing and the living, fully activating the sector’s potential, and supporting the ambitious environmental objectives of La Défense.

The urban project management team, led by architecturestudio, SemperVirens Venture Capital , TRACTEBEL, Transfaire, Monono and ABA-WORKSHOP, will initially be tasked with assisting PLD with the various phases of the “Empreintes” APUI; it will then support the winning property project and design the redevelopment of the public spaces in the area.
