A new page is being written here, that of an address that is both Parisian and singular, in the calm of an unsuspected passage. In this atypical place of former artists' studios, this residence takes place by associating a sought-after address, an art of living, nature and an absolute serenity in the heart of a green setting just a step away from the urban effervescence.
The residence unfolds subtly to offer a living space of its own, a bubble of comfort and greenery. It is accessed via a discreet street. At the end of a private and quiet path, the new wooden building stands on either side of a garden courtyard, marking a natural breathing space. To testify to the history of the place, a wall of shelter is dressed by an original creation of the architect. The gabion cages are lined with materials recovered from existing buildings, others are empty to accommodate climbing vegetation where birdhouses are interspersed. Bricks, cobblestones and other tiles mixed with foliage then take over this evanescent work.
The architectural ensemble carefully preserves the workshop spirit of the site thanks to the use of a light, shaded concrete, combined with wood cladding and white openwork metal railings. Further on, another paved and covered pathway leads to a second green heart where a charming renovated townhouse with its private courtyard is revealed in an unexpected and unusual way.
From studios to 5-room apartments, some of which are duplexes, the apartments have been designed to offer you beautiful living spaces and a unique sense of well-being. Thanks to the large openings with multiple orientations, the interiors are bathed in a 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 over the landscaped areas. On the top floors, the family homes offer open-air terraces to take full advantage of the fine weather and contemplate the magnificent views over the city. Finally, the residence's only house, a pearl in the heart of the city, is spacious and well thought out. On two levels, it features a master suite and a paved courtyard.
The residential garden is a reinterpretation of the Parisian courtyards. Its Napoleon cobblestones, preserved from the existing building, participate in the alternating atmospheres 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 richness of textures, colours and smells.
The plant palette of local species, trees and berry bushes encourages the presence of birds. Nesting boxes are installed to allow their nesting. The rocks are shelters appreciated by butterflies. The private terraces are an integral part of the garden, blending in with the vegetation and offering an intimate and relaxing place to live for the inhabitants. On the roof, the vegetable terrace allows residents to grow their own vegetables and fruit throughout the year, thanks in particular to the greenhouse and the vegetable patches.
