Mixing the complexity of the citywith the comfort of high-quality housing, it is a unique combination of infrastruc-ture and urban life, holding the potential to become a new model for subsidizedhousing. As a manifestation of a contemporary strategy to reinvigorate the city,the project’s volume rests on top of an active subway maintenance workshop – afirst in Paris.
The project elegantly complements the traditional Haussmannian street, oscillat-ing between academia and high-end contemporary design. The long façade isperceived as a series of volumes characterized by setbacks and carved-out reces-sions – redents – resulting from typological rigor and richness, where limitationsare observed but simultaneously define a framework for invention.
Inside, residents are offered 110 units on five floors. Four apartment types rangefrom smaller-scale studios to five-room layouts and profit from the building’s par-ticular spatial situation.
