Here is written a new page, that of an address both Parisian and singular, in the calm of an unsuspected passage. In this atypical place of former artists’ studios, this new construction takes place by combining a sought-after address, an art of living, nature and absolute serenity in the heart of a green setting close to the urban effervescence. .
This innovative architectural project takes advantage of a privileged setting: nestled in the heart of the block, sheltered from the hustle and bustle of the street, it is discovered by crossing a discreet passage between rue des Lyanes and rue de Bagnolet.
The site’s past as an artisanal courtyard finds a second life here around two garden courtyards towards which the dwellings and their exterior extensions turn. The mineral base of the building, sequenced and glazed in memory of the workshops, provides a lasting foundation for the floors made of wooden structure, thus inscribing its mark in a more sustainable and ecological city.
The variations in height and the layout of the building make it possible to accommodate terraces with unobstructed views of the surrounding landscapes. On the top floor, a greenhouse and a vegetable garden offer a place of sharing where to meet and do things together.
COMBINING CONCRETE AND WOOD
FOR AN AFFIRMED CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE
This new construction unfolds subtly to offer a special place to live, a bubble of comfort and greenery. It is accessed by the discreet rue des Lyanes. At the end of a private and quiet path, stands the new wooden building, on either side of a garden courtyard, marking a natural breath.
To bear witness to the history of the place, a wall of the accommodation is covered with an original creation by the architect. Gabion cages are lined with materials salvaged from existing buildings, others are empty to accommodate climbing vegetation where birdhouses are interspersed. The bricks, cobblestones and other tiles mixed with the foliage then take over this evanescent work.
Paris, new construction in the middle of a secret garden
The architectural ensemble carefully preserves the workshop spirit of the site thanks to the use of clear and screened stained concrete, combined with wooden cladding and white perforated metal railings.
Further on, another paved and covered path leads to a second green heart where a charming renovated town house with its private courtyard is revealed in an unexpected and unusual way.
OFFER YOURSELF SPACE AND LIGHT
From studios to 5-room apartments, some duplex, the apartments have been created to offer you beautiful living spaces and unique well-being.
Thanks to large openings with multiple orientations, the interiors are bathed in pleasant natural light revealing a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Most of the living rooms open onto private terraces on the ground floor or balconies on the upper floors inviting you to enjoy the relaxing views of the landscaped areas. On the top floors, the family accommodations offer open-air terraces to take full advantage of sunny days and contemplate magnificent panoramas of the city.
Finally, the only house in the residence, a pearl in the heart of the city, is spacious and well thought out. On its two levels, it reveals many assets with a parental suite and a paved courtyard.
The residential garden on rue des Lyanes is a reinterpretation of Parisian courtyards. Its Napoleon cobblestones, preserved from the existing building, contribute to the alternating atmospheres of landscapes of undergrowth and small clearings to form a real space of freshness, calm and nature dedicated to biodiversity in this urban setting.
The luminous foliage, the white flowers, the red fruits and the shades of bark of the plant species as well as the rocks bring a wealth of textures, colors and smells.
The plant palette with local species, trees and berry bushes favors the presence of birds. Nesting boxes are installed to allow their nesting. Rocks are popular shelters for butterflies. The private terraces, which are part of this garden, blend into the vegetation and offer an intimate and relaxing corner where life is good for the inhabitants. On the roof, the vegetable terrace allows the inhabitants to grow their own vegetables and fruits throughout the year thanks in particular to the greenhouse and the vegetable plots.
