Typologies of existing building blocks are referenced as a method of integrating new construction within the existing context.
Through the use of timber, an open facade, and the integration of plants, the building at Lot 3 amplifies the site's landscape character.
To further reduce carbon footprint during construction, 80% of materials will be sourced from Paris and its surroundings.
The project restores vegetation, encourages low-carbon mobility and includes activities that will foster sustainable living such as zero-waste food and beverage outlets and a grand hall dedicated to an ongoing flea market.
Internally the design considers the life cycle of the buildings beyond initial use. Office spaces are designed in modules that are easily converted to apartments.
