7-9 rue de l’Atlas

Located below the Buttes Chaumont Park and the Butte Bergeyre, the Rue de l’Atlas links different urban situations in the heart of the lively 19th arrondisement. Taking advantage of the demolition of a disused industrial hall, the new building is installed at the bottom of the plot, allowing the preservation and enhancement of the residential building on the street.

The functional mix of the neighbourhood is reflected in the programme implemented. The volume of the building allows the creation of a large planted courtyard. This allows the distribution of the sports hall in the basement as well as the offices on the ground floor, the first and second floors. The housing units benefit from the views and sunshine of the upper floors. A first emergence adjoining to the existing building offers an extension to 4 dwellings which then enjoy large and luminous living rooms as well as balconies facing the south and the great landscape. A second emergence also allows the creation of large terraces. The facades are a more contemporary approach of the industrial ateliers of the suburbs, characterised by a regular grid of large glass windows and the use of limewashed bricks.
