Agence Bernard Bühler : Résidence Fulton

As part of the urban renewal project for Fulton Island, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, architect Bernard Bühler, winner of the contest sponsored by the social housing company ICF Habitat La Sablière, delivers a residence of 87 social housing. The whole, with holographic and geometric balconies, animates the front of the Seine.

Built in the place of the former Tour Paris 13, a building erected in the 1960 years and 2013 ephemeral urban art support, the residence Fulton offers its tenants a habitat of quality, functional and environmentally friendly . It is part of the Climate Plan of the City of Paris, thanks in particular to efficient insulation.

Spread over 11 floors, the 87 apartments ranging from the T1 to the T5 are intended to accommodate a low-income population in prime conditions, with mostly balconies facing the river. On the quays of the Seine, the building stands out with its concrete structure and the kaleidoscopic covering of its asymmetrical balconies, a blue / gold dichrome glass, offering residents polymorphic terraces, whose color changes according to the light.

The remainder of the plot will be completed by two other buildings of Ignacio Prego and PERIPHERIES Architects, which will close the rehabilitation of this islet south of Paris.

  • At a time when light appears everywhere as an innovative and powerful solution, it is an excellent choice to play with reflections and colors. In addition it will give a brightness that the concrete does not provide. As glass is a good thermal insulator, the notion of reducing energy costs outweighs the benefits of this project.
