Archikubik, winner of Réinventer Paris 3

We are delighted to announce that Archikubik has won the competition to transform the former Renault garage at 29, Quai de Grenelle in Paris’s 15th arrondissement, as part of the new edition of Réinventer Paris 3, launched by Paris City Council.

It is a building of 7,310 m2, with 70 apartments (70% unsubsidised and 30% subsidised), a social housing hotel for families and a postgraduate school specialising in art/fashion/materials/crafts.

Cour des Loges forms part of the remarkable history of this Parisian neighbourhood, expressing the values of the present human and material legacy. An architecture is proposed that preserves and restores what already exists, minimising new construction. With a systemic perspective, we contribute to accelerating the ecological, social and economic transition poetically and contextually.

The team is composed of the Cappelli Group and Immo Extenso, in addition to Agence Franck Boutté, Courtoisie Urbaine, Mobius and Chòreme.
