/ 25 apartments / retail and working spaces
/ COMMISIONED STUDY
/ IN PROGRESS
The theme of the project is the "apartment building", the most common element of the Parisian urban landscape. We decided to question and reinterpret this typology by using a simple, clear and abstract architectural language; both contemporary and in dialogue with the existing context.
The project is elementary, sober, surprisingly generic.
The new building occupies the site of a former five-story car park. We decided to cut the plot into three parts that are organized around a green courtyard. We concentrated all the activities, which could relate to the surrounding, on the ground floor: a retail space, a lobby that allows access to the inner courtyard and to the apartments, as well as a workshop for local businesses.
