Bordered by rue des Orteaux, rue de Fontarabie, and the Passage Fréquel, the Fréquel-Fontarabie block is the last stage of the development of the mixed development zone of the la Réunion neighborhood. This effort has sought to reduce the visible level of in-habitability, build new housing, value existing resources, and design nearby public facilities in an effort to create quality public spaces. The project to build thirty housing units has pursued a dual goal: to reconstruct the older urban fabric through small interventions within an overall framework of sustainable development.

The City of Paris has given the green light to MVRDV’s ambitious plan for the restructuring of the mixed-use urban block Vandamme Nord at Gaîté-Montparnasse in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. The large building complex, built in the 1970s, comprises a shopping centre, offices, a public library, a hotel and an underground car park, all of which will be retrofitted so as to reintroduce the human scale to an urban environment largely characterized by wide boulevards and monolithic structures. In addition to the face-lift provided by a new facade, the accessibility and programmatic identity of each of these programs will be improved through a total internal reorganisation of the complex. The building’s restructuring also foresees extending the existing commercial spaces, creating new office space, a new kindergarten, an expanded library, a conference centre, as well as a number of social housing units.

This very compact project hosts several programs transforming the building into a real little machine for living. This density assumed by extremely rational plans (development and distribution studios) has two breaths, acting as the urban level as a point of view of applications. The first is horizontal, formed by an open 3rd floor, it gathers all common facilities (library, gym, communal kitchen …) arranged freely on the tray lookout over the city. The second breath is a vertical fault that brings natural light in all circulations horizontal (and vertical). In this regard, we encourage the use of public spaces (including stairs) which are viewed as places for sharing nice and bright. On the urban point of view, this work is how to synchronize the building with a topographic changing context: the device, its coverage, the steepness of the area, the terrace of the art cinema and testing …. All these levels present in the Porte des Lilas are many references with which the new project dialog through its own system of “urban balconies” is playing new strata of the city.

“Just like the other European capitals such as Rome, Venice, or Barcelona, Paris risks to become a city museum. The increase of tourists in the French Capital causes panic and also leads to a gradual decentralization from the Parisians.
Paris has the largest concentration in m² of museums in the world, nearly 120 museums in total, with many urban areas which tend to be transformed into living conservatories.

Ova Design has worked hand-in-hand with the Palais des Thés, accompanying them in their evolution by redesigning the boutique in Paris’ 3rd district. This mock-up is a success for the overall design, which is in harmony with the brand’s new positioning, “Vivons le thé”. The Ova Design agency specialises in retail design. It was thus able to showcase all its talents for the famous tea company, from product design to the commercial interior. Ultimately, the Ova Design concept will be applied to all the company’s outlets, some 32 boutiques.

The Paris atelier C comme C is causing a stir: extraordinary design for new restaurant on Montmartre .
C comme C, the architecture and design bureau of Carole Chuffart und Carole Vermont with headquarters in Paris, designed the atypical interior of the restaurant Jeanne B at the foot of Montmartre.
