With their simple volumetry, the specificity of the housing units lies in the handling of the external spaces which extend beyond the facades to create zinc “boxes” positioned to take advantage of the views and sunlight.

To ensure urban coherence, the residential hotel is constructed from the same materials. The three buildings create transparencies through a patio opening onto the river Seine.
