Sector E of the Olympic and Paralympic Village of Paris 2024 offers an incredible opportunity to transform a territory today and tomorrow and to set up an innovative district for 2050: a district with a positive impact, an inclusive city, without relegation, welcoming for all its inhabitants and for biodiversity.
The 5 objectives for "the Belvederes" and "the Villas" (the two areas that make up Sector E) are summarised as follows:
1. To offer an athletes' village that breathes Paris 2050 and as a legacy, a mixed and generous district open on the Seine,
2. Propose a project in gentle transition between Saint-Ouen and Saint- Denis for a future neighbourhood anchored in its context,
3. To instil a spirit to places, by setting up an architectural grammar that participates in the urban atmospheres of public and private spaces,
4. Install biodiversity in all spaces: ground, facades, roofs...
5. Designing a neighbourhood microclimate based on the achievement of a low-carbon objective reinforced by :
Among the residential buildings that make up the urban project, the 2 R+9 buildings positioned on "Le Belvédère" (E1A and E2A) and the 2 other R+5 buildings integrated into the "suburb" (E1A' and E2A') are designed by the Bartolo+Contré architects agency.
The R+9 bow building displays, as a belvedere over the Seine, the general skyline of the future district. The play of volumes of its upper part, which creates as many surprising spaces as privileged terraces, ensures the destination of its "signifying" role as the prow of a "ship".
Moreover, the design of the building offers quality living spaces on all floors and habitable facades for each inhabitant facing the most interesting points of view.
Positioned at the interface between the "villa" district and the "belvedere" towers, the R+5 median blocks adapt to the pedestrian scale in a "Faubourien" urban project of small collectives and town houses. In contrast to the neighbouring urban front, these buildings stand out for their architectural capacity to generate several ways of living outside or living with the context. In loggias, balconies or terraces, each apartment benefits from a particular extension shaped according to the view, the solar orientation, the proximity of the Seine or of a plant ensemble, etc...
