Paris is well known for its beautiful architecture. In fact, the city promotes beauty, art and everything that is a true feast for the eyes. We’ve said already that’s why visiting Paris means an especially attractive, pleasing, and remarkable sight and visual experience! We can also say that Jean Bocabeille Architecte has a part in this.
Paris’ Clichy-Batignolles eco district has taken point in the french city’s envisioning for a timeless, mixed-use future. Adding to the zone (17th arrondissement) is the ‘Monts et Merveilles’ development by Jean Bocabeille architecte.
Composed of social housing, residences, a ground level religious center, and retail frontage — the project seamlessly combine with the earlier ‘ehpad senior housing’ by Atelier du Pont.
On the site’s eastern end, facing Rue Cardinet, are social housing units. The compact building shares a patio with above mentioned Ehpad Senior Housing, which together overlook a park.
Opposite is the private Residence Block and Ozanam House — the latter consisting of a chapel and congregation area. Characterized by complex forms of orange and red, the building includes 86 apartments. Each has a terrace and provides unrestricted views of the development’s park and the Saussure Block beyond.
Parisian architecture is richer now, with this project. The city continues being a true design inspiration for every design lover. Architects like Bocabeille are magnificent, in what concerns giving the City of Light a modern approach, without ever losing its identity.
