Between city and green space

The largest square in eastern Paris, the Place Félix Eboué, has a new landmark: the residential and commercial building of Baumschlager Eberle Architekten closes the gap between a modernist building and a Belle Epoque house.

Our team in Paris managed to formulate the transition very elegantly with a final terrace and an adjacent tower: The new house presents itself with a strongly sculptural architecture whose articulation reflects the dynamics of the urban space. With its shimmering white façade and striking shutters, it is more than just an enrichment for urban life. A spatial flow is developed quite consistently, leading from the square via a passage into the landscaped courtyard. In this way, the rigid separation between the public and private spheres is eliminated to the benefit of residents and passers-by.
