The Grand Central Saint-Lazare is an inescapable landmark of bysteel and for bysteel fs’s history, who were jointly responsible for the structural steel and facades for this project.
Monet's Le Parliament, soleil couchant, is the painting that inspires the Ferrier Marchetti office for the façade of one of the project’s main elevations. The second skin of this facade mimics a detail of this piece of art from the early twentieth century, through 1600 fritted glass blades with different shades and inclinations resulting in a large-scale painting.
Given the lack of precedents in this type of facade systems, the system has undergone rigorous CSTB testing in order to successfully obtain ATEX certification.
