The building team of RDAI France managed to create an architectural project influenced by the great lines of the local architecture. The futuristic style of the building shows off an aluminium front coloured in copper that expresses the rhythm and the verticality of bamboo as a material.
The interior design, on the other hand, is based on materials such as lacquered wood, copper, stucco, marble and steamed metals, all of which were based on warm colours. The use of these types of materials changes the perspective of any types of buildings. This is a good example of one of the goals that RDAI Paris had in regards to the look of this building, particularly on the inside.
