Part of the urban renewal of the Boulevard Ney and the Porte de Clignancourt, this new building is split into two volumes joined by a common base, which houses a nursery. The densification of an existing plot dating from the 1970s made it possible to align the building with the boulevard and thus to better maintain and enliven it. Respectful of the modernist architecture of the existing towers, the positioning of the two mid-rises of 6 and 9 floors facing each other, and their staggered, successive set-backs, successfully opened up views for both of the existing towers as well as for the new dwellings and ensures sunshine for the courtyard of the nursery. The interplay of sliding effects, the floors are treated as strata that refine the volumes. The right-angle corners of the existing towers are in opposition to this building’ rounded corners, which present a set of materials enhancing transparency and light. Two sets of geometric brick assemblages sketch a delicate pattern that enlivens the façades while their corners and guardrails on terraces and loggias are composed of an aerial assemblage of brick openwork. The building’s solid brick dialogs with the history of the older, affordable HBMs, while its white color and the interplay of moldings are expressed in a very contemporary language.
