C18 – Rue Caillié

This project for 40 social apartments along a narrow street is our homage to Paris – brick, creamy render, shuttered windows, zinc roofs, sheer gables. A layered sequence of thresholds and spaces leads from public to private worlds, culminating in generous open-air landings at every apartment’s front door.

Rebuilding the street as part of the regeneration of this part of the city

Project conceived as a sequence of layers and thresholds – at the level of the city,  from the boulevard to the park; and at the level of the building, from the street, through gardens, courtyards and stairs, to the large terrace-like landings and home

It is our homage to Paris, and to this faubourg; a calm rhythmic street front with regular openings and shuttered windows, pale creamy render, warm brick, zinc roofs

Gardens between our buildings widen the walls of this narrow corridor-like street, bringing in light, air, greenery, animation and depth

These intervals reveal interior worlds of planting, colour and texture, set against the cliff-like backdrop of the mighty 19th century gable wall that runs the length of our site

The gardens, courtyards, generous landings and balconies are places for people to live, sit out, meet, play and interact

All apartments have at least two aspects – sometimes three – and those on the uppermost floors use the height offered by the rising and dipping roof line
