Paris Social Housing – 3 Dec 2012
In order to hold its place efficiently within the urban fabric its architecture is simple and takes advantage of the sheer size of a 60 apartment’s construction. Size matters when it comes to achieve a dense city. Simplicity and some uniformity contribute to the appeal of residential buildings. The specific colour of the facades helps assert the presence of the building.

Social Housing Paris
Located at the intersection of the homogeneous and haussmannian landscape along Gossec Street, and of the disparate architecture made up through time on Picpus Street, the site on which this 63 social housing program is established is an element of a typical “collage-city” landscape, also characterized by a double movement of the natural soil.

The facades unfold like a large graphic composition, generous and scaleless. The notion of floor levels is concealed, the rhythms of the openings are systematic and surprising.

The program is repetitive by nature: 190 student rooms, for 190 students of the same age, with the same education level. We do not try to confront this repetition but rather we create unity and identity, bringing together these 190 individualities.
