“The building itself is the support for this vertical garden, which will grow and occupy the entire façade, turning the building into a vertical, medicinal forest and becoming the main architecture,” explains Triptyque partner, Guillaume Sibaud. The building has a living facade whose geometry is formed by metallic structure beams, conceived to house medicinal herbal plants, fruit trees, and medium to large-sized perennial species.
The mixed-use complex holds a hotel, restaurant, bar, conference area, check-up area, co-working space, and a showroom for start-ups in the world of health to promote mixing, exchanges and mutual aid between the different specialties and the different generations of health professionals.
