RFR performed the design studies and supervised the works to replace the original curtain façades of the tower, including the concrete cladding elements. The design studies included unitized façade panels composed of SSG (structural sealant glazing) and incorporating shadow boxes, the glass-cement composite cladding shells, the façade lighting elements, the entrance hall façade, and the maintenance cradles.
Tour Paris Lyon hotel

Originally intended to become a hotel, the building was finally designed and opened in 1974 as offices. Its ageing facilities, combined with its location and visibility, led to a refurbishment project that began in 2015 in order to convert it into a hotel. The works aim to achieve a high level of architectural quality, confort and technical performance. The project notably includes replacing all the original curtain façades of the tower, including the concrete elements.
