Project context

This international banking group, one of the world’s largest market capitalisations, hired Korus to restore its premises, located in one of the tallest buildings in the La Défense business district. The goal of the project was to bring all of the group’s different entities together on the one site, as they had previously been spread out over several distinct sites. The work took more than 10 months.
