Text description provided by the architects. The Entre Deux Rives housing project, developed by the agency Philippon-Kalt, announces the start of the new Ile-Saint-Denis riverside green neighbourhood. The development will revitalize a former industrial wasteland. It includes 165 homes in 8 buildings ranging from 3 and 7 floors, spread over 3 small blocks.

Site Plan
Site Plan

Living here means adopting an island identity, a mind-set specific to Ile-Saint-Denis. The building, within the green neighbourhood, has been developed as a shared space, to be invested collectively. Council and private housing share the same staircases.

Passages between blocks are designed to encourage meetings. Empty spaces invite residents to appropriate them; the loggia gardens can become a subject for discussions amongst neighbours. Shared spaces with wide windows and Persian blinds, and the low fences around the rolling gardens encourage openness to one another.
