The main idea of this program is the renewal of the shopping centre, significance of the street and links to adjacent neighbourhoods. This renovation, then, aims at creating a urban symbol for the 15th arrondissement.
The shopping centre will consist of a new generation of urban shopping centres with new corner entrances and shop windows. The Creation of street wall facades will provide a new urban scale.

The façade is made out of painted glazed windows. It protects simple fluid volumes.

An additional retail space will be linked to the main shopping centre by two atriums in the center of the two parcels on which is implanted the shopping centre. One atrium, visible from the street, is circular in form. A green house will connect the other other atrium to the Seine river. Circular-shaped Restaurants with panoramic views will be positioned on each side of the Grenelle Bridge.
