Dietmar Feichtinger Architects: 10 social housing

Castagnary street in 15e district of Paris, the agency Dietmar Feichtinger Architects develops a complex involving ten social housing and a convenience dressed in a metallic skin. Insertion both delicate and bold in the neighborhood makes it a remarkable building.

Located on a parcel located between the Castagnary street and railroad tracks from Montparnasse train station, all unfolds L to house courtyard private garden that shines through the ground floor through dedicated to the Home businesses. Sun and vegetation therefore it showcases. The inclination of the perforated metal facade on the last two levels thus allows apartments that are there to capture more sunlight, while strengthening the contemporary vocabulary of the building discreetly disrupts the urban pattern of the neighborhood.


Consisting of thin removable white plates and sliding panels at the windows, the coating protects the housing overheating and south-facing balconies from prying eyes.
