Private Housing, social housing and Nursery school, Asile Popincourt, Paris (11th)
In the dense urban fabric of Paris’ 11th arrondissement, which is still characterised by traces of its artisanal past, this project marks a meeting point between two city histories.The cross-block plot links two narrow streets in one direction, and little neighbouring courtyards in the other.
A “mini” nursery is located at ground level and its garden opens views to the Popincourt passage, creating an urban window between the two streets. A second garden area, created one level higher, is for the residents’ use, who access their units along garden-planted exterior walkways.
