From the architect. Designed by architect Edouard François, Eden Bio housing complex includes 100 housing units, 52 parking spaces, artists' studios, along with community gathering spaces for local activities. The architect created a contemporary design with a pastiche of old Paris style.

The project is somewhat a maze of stairs, a mixture of concrete and wood latice, coupled with vertical timber extensions gracing the exteriors of the housing units. The wood fencing lining the sidewalk somehow seems to work well with the colors of terra cotta in the roofing and window boxes, and varied shades of gray as siding.
