Between the Martin Luther King Park and the railway line, a new urbanised area about the same size as the Île de la Cité, connects the rue Cardinet with the boulevard Berthier.
To imagine the future of this new neighbourhood, we took part in several themed innovative urban planning workshops. The planning approach establishes a landscape in three layers:
- The landscape edge. An interface which creates a buffer zone between the private inhabited spaces and the public park.
- The grove. Partly located above an underground car park, this garden esplanade, at the foot of the housing units, is a convivial shared space. It is a fresh space, providing shade and contributing to the bioclimatology of the architecture.
- The garden terraces. These are terraces for the housing units where possible; places to relax.
Facing the terraced park on the first floor, the Kitchen Club is a service offered to residents, which contributes to the quality of life and to encourages neighbours to meet each other. It also creates an important link between the different project spaces. On the ground, there is a harmony between mineral space and planted beds; this regulates the flow of humidity, creating shade and freshness. Whilst use of the kitchen is subject to a fee (to pay cleaning and maintenance costs) the rest of the terrace is freely accessible.
