The project falls within the general framework of restructuring Porte Pouchet (Paris, 17th arrondissement) and, more particularly, the site represented by Rue Rebière which, until now, had been largely ignored. The 25 housing units are distributed over two buildings, each making reference to its specific context: a small tower develops the form generated by a small square on the west side. It is linked by walkways to a more compact building positioned on the street’s alignment and provides continuity with adjacent projects. These two systems generate diversified housing units (17 different types out of a total of 25) with views over the city and considerable thought given to positioning with regards neighbours. The result is an architecture that takes full advantage of this limited site (18 x 50 m).
