CITIZENM CHARLES DE GAULLE
Designer: CONCRETE ARCHITECTURAL ASSOCIATES
After New York, citizenM opened its doors in Paris as well! Close to Charles de Gaulle airport, citizenM charles de gaulle serves as a refuge for the travelling citizens flying in and out of Paris. It’s designed as a home away from home. A welcoming and visible entrance, presenting an inspiring commissioned work of art by Julian Opie that covers the entire front façade and is angled towards the terminal & RER station. citizenM charles de gaulle offers Paris 230 of its signature guest rooms, set on top of a vibrant living room area, an open and dynamic space that forms the social heart of citizenM. It's a place to have a drink, work or relax and be inspired by art.
The building is created as a solid block consisting of 6 stories, sloping back to 5 in the direction of the landing strip. It has the potential for a future 4-storey extension in that direction. Black aluminium windows through the solid façade, denote the individual rooms.
