Les Ateliers Jean Nouvel, a new vision of well-being

Jean Nouvel
The HEKLA tower is the result of a collaboration between Jean nouvel, who is the bearer of an iconic architecture, and AG Real Estate and Hines, who bring their experience in the construction of large head offices.
“ The invention of Hekla’s design is strongly influenced by the Rose de Cherbourg construction project.

I imagined a prismatic composition which multiplies the polychrome sun-screens - bronze, silver and blue - and mingles glass and metal, brightness and shade, mass effects and transparency. The last floors in triplex constitute a landscaped head in strong contrast to most of the neighbouring orthogonal or parallelepipedal buildings whose transition with the sky is horizontal...

“ Here a new high-rise experience is possible with stunning views. ”

...Inside Hekla, technical limitations have been optimised to create vast work and convivial spaces. Lobbies, amphitheatre, projection rooms and performance halls, restaurants, bars, gym and loggias contribute to a new art of working that is both hedonistic and connected. 

Hekla incarnates the ambition to create innovative workspaces and enrich the skyline of La Défense with a fitting attribute: flamboyance. ”
