Edouard François. Eden Bio. Paris

Vignoles is a construction on an entire Parisian housing block. Due to its size, the project is about both urbanism and architecture. The block of houses is not situated in Haussmannian Paris with chic boulevards as is the Fouquet’s Barrière that was designed at the same time. Vignoles is situated in a picturesque and popular neighbourhood. The block is crossed by narrow alleys a couple of meters wide. They are a relic of the bygone ‘faubourg’ with its fruit gardens.

The surrounding architecture is of low height and is constituted of bits and pieces, little fragments that have a lot of charm. An architecture to be lived, that has never been designed. The program comprises a hundred new social appartments and ateliers for artists, some new community rooms and a small renovated restaurant.

The urbanistic approach of leaving the street frontage with its original small scale and densifying the center is new in town. It is contrary to Haussmannian belief, where order and density face the street and the wilderness is behind.
