The Champs-Elysées Gardens

Renovation et re-vegetation

A central part of Paris’s historical axis which extends from the Louvre to la Défense, the Jardins des Champs-Elysées enjoy an exceptional location by the Jardin des Tuileries, right by the Seine. They cover 30 hectares and comprise several gardens interspersed with heritage buildings which host a programme of cultural, gastronomic and special events.

The English landscaped style, inherited from the 19th century and the designer Jean-Charles Adolphe Alphand, still marks the appearance of the gardens today, although they have come to lack consistency from a landscaping and historical standpoint.

The restoration of the main historical elements of these gardens has become necessary in order to recapture the spirit and quality of the initial project, while adapting its uses to the modern day. Fountains, pavilions, public lighting systems, and pedestrian walkways make up the foundation of its composition.
