A building in Paris which did not meet hygiene and security standards for social housing was recently rehabilitated by h2o architectes, adding a unique contemporary extension to the 19th century building as well as 20 new social units and three new commercial spaces on rue Godefroy Cavaignac.

“The agency’s aim was to renew the image of the building in the street while responding to the requirements of the ‘patrimoine habitat environnement’ certification.” says h2o architectes. “The project is largely based on the building extension, contemporary reinvention of the bow-window, inserted in the prolongation of the unfinished 19th century façade.”

“The alternation of voids and solids as well as the diagonal cutting of the volumes break the visual monotony of the alignment of the buildings in the street and offer new and interesting views onto the rue de Charonne.”

“Inside, the apartments benefit from new space and comfort including, for some of them, a small space for gardening, a loggia or balcony.”

“The courtyard is transformed into a planted patio which is made visible thanks to a transparent wall from the street.”
