Eden Bio in Paris, France by Maison Edouard François

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

Article source: Maison Edouard François

Eden Bio was a study of the densification of a typical suburban block on the east side of Paris.

Three ideas guided the project.

The first idea was to respect the surroundings and its history \”à la Doisneau\”. There were pre-existing buildings, full of life and devoid of pretension, some low, others tall. Long and narrow alleyways that are remnant of the area’s agricultural history interrupt the street alignment and spatially define the plot, while vegetation-filled corridors lead the eye into the sun-filled core of the block.
