Avenue De La Resistance
Residential | Le Raincy, Paris
A unique collection of properties located in the historic Paris suburb of Le Raincy. The design approach seeks to bring varied buildings together as a wholistic residential development with secure access and singular management. From two storey alleyway townhouses, a 70’s apartment building and a heritage-listed 1800’s mansion block, the contrasting spaces within allow for the creation of unique living areas into forty-seven (47) individualistic homes, four (4) retail outlets and one (1) office space. From Juliet balconies, rooftop gardens and shared courtyards, the outdoor vistas are framed through a variety of period window frames along a carefully curated axis, maximising daylight views whilst maintaining privacy in this high-density neighbourhood. Careful structural additions, as well as strategic facade alterations and extensive landscape and lighting treatments, massage the existing building fabric into a cohesive whole without robbing them of their historic and individual charms.
