An urban synthesis.
To one side, an obediently Hausmannian street front; to the back, a modern city block; flanked by uninspired urban fabric, creating windowless gables and dead space. The project therefore aims to respond not only to its program, but also a chaotic urban setting. The project implants itself in such a way to allow the permeability of the modern block behind it, while creating views onto the neighboring residences. It creates an urban synthesis by fostering a conversation between building and street, through open gables and a lively, double-height ground floor. The synthesis is also an architectural one, as it rewrites the rationality of the 1970’s with the elegant materiality of the Hausmannian Era. The result is a soothing, calm project; a residence to make living good.
