Banque de France administration building

La Courneuve

The material for the new building of the Banque de France was to be unique, sustainable and made of natural materials. White-glazed brick tiles from MOEDING were the solution. The tile shape was worked out in close cooperation between the architects Jean-Paul Viguier et Associés and MOEDING. The horizontal section of the tiles corresponds to the logo of the Banque de France. The tiles produce a visual impression of “vibration” and create depth in the surface as well as an interplay of different shades of orange, blue and pink.
