paris’ clichy-batignolles ecodistrict 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(s) 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.

  • Wow, it has a chapel? I’m surprised that’s allowed. Wouldn’t want to offend anyone now would we.
