The operation is part of a logic of strong urban structuring. The two towers of flats mark the corners of Fulton / Bellièvre streets with the Quai d’Austerlitz. On the other hand, these two emergences are separated by a void that seems to be dug between the buildings. The breach created offers a perspective from the heart of the parcel to the Seine and, conversely, from the Quai d’Austerlitz, it gives to read the third floor landscape and vegetated depth of the Fulton block.

From the outside, the dwellings are defined by generous balconies oriented towards the Seine that wind in the fault around the 2 buildings. Thus, each accommodation offers a view of the Seine but also on the garden in “heart of ilot”. The double or triple-oriented units provide luminous quality and a significant amount of solar energy for the comfort of use.

The railing of the balconies are in dichroic glass. That is to say that depending on the orientation, the angle of view, a color will appear appearing from blue to yellow, going through the green. The particularity of this glazing also allows to protect the interior of the balconies. Thus, the tenant may be on his balcony without being seen, protected by the color of the glazing.
