DUO is a major urban architectural project encompassing 1,130,200 sq. ft. (105,000 m²
) in the 13th arrondissement of Paris. The DUO project, designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel, consists of two towers (29 and 39 storeys), as well as many areas open to the public and more than 21,500 sq. ft. (2,000 m²
) of green space.
This mixed-use project was selected after a consultation process and a competition held by the City of Paris. It will feature offices, shops, a high-rise luxury hotel, restaurants, a sky bar and an auditorium. Blending perfectly into its environment, DUO will also include a garden open to the public, tree-lined patios and numerous access points to public transportation.
DUO will be built to the highest standards of environmental and energy performance to earn the Effinergie+ label and to obtain HQE®
