Le Croissant: a place of contemplation, pleasure and visual comfort


The nocturnal lighting environment of this district is an important element of the nocturnal urban composition of the city of Nanterre, one of the gateways to the city, particularly from La Défense.

Le Croissant district beats quietly or intensely depending on the time of night, to the rhythm of the activities of its inhabitants, of all the people who pass through it, of the events and festivities that may take place there. It is a place of life, a space to live in, day and night.
