High-Performance Glass Facade Of First Tower
One of the oldest buildings in La Défense, Paris’s high-rise office district, is well on its way to turning into an energy-efficient entity. This will be facilitated by a highly modernised glass façade among other sustainable and Green features. This building is the “Tour First” or “AXA Tower”, re-christened as “First Tower”, and has been under renovation since 2007. Post completion of the reconstruction, it will stand as the tallest office building in France, at a height of 231 meters. It is already the first skyscraper in the country to have received a HQE (High Environmental Quality) certification.
First Tower is a brilliant example of how an existing building can be enhanced with energy-efficient features without compromising on aesthetic and functional performances.
