Notre-Dame de Pentecôte (NDP) is a church located in Puteaux in the heart of La Défense business district (Hauts-de-Seine).

The original architecture of Notre-Dame de Pentecôte was designed by French architect Franck Hammoutène, and was consecrated and opens its doors on January 7, 2001.


The facade rises to a height of 35 meters, partly detached from the building, comparable to a bell tower. On this concrete wall covered with gray opaque glass panes, two lines of a lighter color draw across the entire height and across the width a cross, large but discreet, like a filigree.


The following pictures where taken in November 2005.
