La Defense office complex is well integrated with the larger urban plan. Both its height and the entrances into the inner courtyards tie in with the larger site. The exterior façade reflects the larger urban condition, while the interior façades of the courtyards have been designed with the office tenants in mind.

These façades are clad with glass panels in which a multi- colored foil is integrated and, depending on the time of day and the angle of incidence, a variety of different colours are reflected, animating the courtyards.
