Studio Razavi + partners unveils housing project in Paris

 

Studio Razavi + Partners has designed 93 Petit, an urban residential project in Paris, France, that embraces sustainable densification. Located on a large rectangular site with the shortest side facing the street, the project aims to create a harmonious relationship with the surrounding urban fabric. The condominium building incorporates massing, inner courtyards, material selection, and window arrangement to achieve this balance. Specific site criteria and the need to maximize square footage led to a typology that adheres to zoning restrictions while offering differentiated building envelopes. This approach helps break down the overall scale of the project, making it more compatible with the adjacent urban environment.

 

The design prioritizes sunlight exposure and thoughtful spatial arrangement to enhance the living experience. The project consists of four building blocks: the longest runs north-south to maximize sunlight exposure from the west, while the remaining three run parallel to the street, opening to both the north and south sides. Terraces on the east side create a gentle transition to neighboring buildings, and brick facades add a tactile, intimate dimension to the design.

93 petit emphasizes densification through its sustainable design

 

Urban buildings of any size shape a city’s morphology, with larger projects placing greater demands on architects to balance land use and design. Studio Razavi + Partners approaches sustainable urban design by emphasizing densification, promoting reliance on public transport, proximity to workplaces, and vibrant local businesses. This project by the Paris-based studio exemplifies their paradigm by integrating these principles into the urban fabric despite its large footprint. Using brick as the primary material adds another dimension to the design, creating a vibrant facade with tactile qualities that foster an intimate scale. The material choice, combined with strategic massing and layout, ensures that the project contributes positively to the city’s morphology and enhances the residents’ quality of life.
