Text description provided by the architects. The project brings together 90 housing units on six upper floors, and a home for young autistic workers on the ground floor. It unfolds on three plots implanted on a common base, separated by generously planted gaps.
The units’ development system allows great constructive simplicity and a strong inscription in the Parisian urban landscape. Each apartment has a protruding edge, forming a loggia in the continuation of living room.
These loggias are alternated or superposed depending on their location on the plan. This composition gives air, light and varied visual openings, some of them quite uniquely overlooking the Eiffel Tower. This permeability answers the wishes of the urban planning team in their development of the neighborhood, namely the return to a "suburban" composition in the spirit of the site’s history.
This design offers a scale of intervention in which all orientations are made attractive, and where the residential appearance depicts a singularity that will allow an appropriation of the place by all its occupants.
The project’s forms, both powerful and simple, are emphasized by the selection of materials: stamped concrete on the base, metal claddings and loggias fully covered with wood on their inner faces. The planted terraces and gaps finish in giving the whole set a rich and sculptural character.
