Vordiplom /// Avenue Jaueres, 19th Arrondissement, Paris, France

This draft deals with a social housing project at a corner site of a busy street in Paris. My concept connects the neighbouring schools with the building through a big library that also serves as bookstore with a reading venue in the courtyard. The book-theme is widely visible like a commercial sign, as big books are printed on the glass panels of the flats. There are several community spaces for the tenants, like the common room with its big terrace and the balcony-like staircase. Those more public spaces are noticeable from the outside by wood fins regulating the climate of the rooms and remind of book pages.
