A gradual walkway carved into the façade connects the buildings from bottom to top. A true meeting place dedicated to the occupants, this walkway in wood tones contrasts with the façade entirely clad in aluminum and glass. Along the promenade, there is a shop, work rooms, an auditorium, a restaurant, a fitness center and a relaxation room.
