The Link, located in the Michelet area of Paris La Défense, is two buildings in one, as it comprises two wings connected by 30 green walkways, or links. These platforms promote chance encounters and collective intelligence and can be used as informal workspaces or panoramic meeting rooms.
Put together, the two wings offer 3,000 square meters per floor plate and 6,000 square meters per duplex, an unheard-of amount for a high-rise in La Défense. The Link will be able to accommodate 500 people per floor plate, or four times more than in a conventional high-rise. The floor space and configuration organically promote movement, interaction and contact. The Link is a light-filled high-rise in which all workstations benefit from natural daylight.
The Link devotes unprecedented space to nature with terraces, hanging gardens and planted rooftops offering 2,800 square meters of greenery – a record for a very tall building in La Défense. This green high-rise brings the outdoors in, with plants everywhere. The Link meets people's physiological need for daily contact with nature and is designed so that employees are never more than a 30-second walk from an exterior area.
Completion is expected by 2025.
