Signed by the agency fresh architectures, Dense City, Density, is a project that includes housing on 16 6 levels 1 13 local shops and parking spaces in the basement. Located in a lively environment, the building reflects the life of the neighborhood through its faceted this dynamic geometry. Covered with glazed tile roof to the façade, the volume reveals the building envelope as a glittering and protective alcove.

The project fits harmoniously in the heart of the city, while increasing guidance and views on the near and distant environment. Like a sculpted object in a position to "bow" urban island, the project is characterized by its cladding tiles that covers the entire building, the R + 1 to the roof. This cladding gives it a special status in the Parisian landscape, its two-tone glazed skin reflects sunlight and the street lighting of the night.

The facade of the project was dressed in two-tone flat tiles offered by the manufacturer Wienerberger who facilitated the isolation from the outside of the building. The project from the beginning of conception environmental ambitions. The collaboration between the architects and the manufacturer allowded to use the same material for both the roof and facades. Which presented some additional technical constraints resolved together.
