GRC brown skin for offices

Issy-les-Moulineaux (France)

Brown bark in the west Seine business district

Designed by Christian de Portzamparc, the Dueo building is located in the new Seine West business district and marks the entry to the town of Issy-les-Moulineaux from Paris. The curvilinear building is covered with a brown double skin of glassfibre-reinforced concrete with random motifs that contrast with the surrounding buildings. To give the 3 000 m² of GRC panels a uniform, more intense colour the architect chose the concrete stain ProtectGuard® Color in a Walnut colour.
