Although I'm everything but carried away by what I can see, I'm gonna wait for some more renders to be released to give my verdict. Actually, I'm waiting to see a front view of the building, it might be interesting, who knows...

Renovating a Work of Art in a Slice of Living History



PARIS — Not so long ago, when employees at the Banque de France’s headquarters needed medical attention, all they had to do was cross the Rue de Valois and climb the stairs of the Palais-Royal to visit the bank’s doctor.

The bank owns a large part of this illustrious Parisian landmark built in 1629 by Cardinal Richelieu, including half of the Beaujolais arcade and the Valois arcade, where the doctor lived and worked.

After he moved out a few years ago, the bank planned to renovate the somewhat dilapidated rooms, which have sweeping views of the linden trees that line the inner courtyard.

But then Amanda Sykes persuaded the bank to let her rent the property and to oversee the renovations. Ms. Sykes, a graduate of Parsons The New School for Design in New York, where she studied French decorative arts, even financed some of the work when her plans outstripped the bank’s ideas.

The agreement was part of a six-year lease, settled in October 2009, that specified rent of €12,000, or $16,520, a month. “You can’t buy these places, as the bank always wants to know who is living here because of the gold bar deliveries downstairs,” said Ms. Sykes, who moved in with her son George, 9, in June 2010.

Her neighbors include the politician Jean-Louis Debré, president of the National Assembly from 2002 to 2007, and the Mona Lisa, who resides across the street in the Louvre.

The space is now an airy two-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom apartment totaling 180 square meters, about 1,900 square feet.

While some structural changes were necessary, the renovations retained as many of the apartment’s original features as possible. “The bank wanted to rip out a lot the historical details, like the cabinets and the fireplaces, but we kept them,” said Ms. Sykes, who sits on the collections committee of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York.

Ms. Sykes worked on the project with the bank’s officials, the architect Aldo Zoli, and the interior designers Michael Chambers and Edward Church.

Patients used to wait on a banquette, an area where Ms. Sykes installed a row of cupboards painted with “Iridium,” a shiny blue color by the manufacturer Sparkl, which she found at the Little Shop in the Marais.

In George’s bedroom, the doctor’s medicine cabinets now hold some playthings. And his bathroom, formerly an examination room, features a deep white tub shaped like a spoon, a Novello product design called “Love.”

The former living area, overlooking the inner courtyard, has been divided into two long rooms that are used for living and dining and a home office. The rooms, which retain the original oak floors and high ceilings, are decorated with a sofa from Le Décor Français in New York, a black chaise by the Bouroullec Brothers and a series of colorful paintings propped above a marble fireplace.

The furnishings were shipped from New York, where the Sykeses once lived in another historic building, the San Remo, on the west side of Central Park.

“Here, the difference is that you don’t have to cross the street to get to the park,” joked Ms. Sykes, whose back door now leads directly to the Palais-Royal arcades and their designer stores and cafes. The arcades were added to the palace in the 1780s and quickly became one of the city’s most popular meeting places.

Now the inner courtyard and forecourt serve as George’s recreation area. He plays football around the Pol Bury sculptures and skateboards between the striped columns by Daniel Buren.

“We are living in a work of art, an incredible piece of French history,” Ms. Sykes said.

Some renders of the three 180m (590 ft) towers that will be built at Issy bridge, near the 15th arrondissement.





They will replace this office building (among other):

I agree with

Anything about this?



Villiot-Rapée Apartments / HAMONIC + MASSON

The buildings on the fringes of the plot rise densely into the sky. The plot is an enclave, with all the advantages that such a position affords: supposed protection from the hubbub of the city, very few cars, the homely character of a site in a clearing, as well as the ground-level space around the plot which opens it up to the sky and floods it with light.

Built in the early sixties along the ring road of Paris, this high rise block of 16 storeys includes 96 apartments. The demolition, firstly envisaged, has been avoided and a project of transformation decided. The project propose a generous extension of the apartments.

New floors, built as a self-supporting structure, are added on the periphery of the existing building at every floor, to extend the living rooms, create closeable terrasses and balconies. The existing facades with small windows have been removed and replaced by large transparent openings, so that the inhabitants profit of the exceptionnal view on Paris all around.

The volumes have been released of all useless rooms and installations to become a free and transparent space from the entrance to a new garden created on the back of the building. Rooms for collective activities have been etablished on the sides of the hall. Two lifts have been built to improve the access to the apartments.

The structure has been designed with prefabricated elements so that the inhabitants can stay in the apartments during the construction works.

Before clicking in this link, I wondered where are these buildings.

Infact it is in Central Paris, next to Gare de Lyon railway terminal.
I think that they let to much empty space, a shame in a city where the space is lacking with a big housing shortage.
In this space they could build more and taller buildings.

I think paris projects towers should be deleguated in cities like issy les moulineaux and small suburbian cities. just because we would go faster by avoiding all the stupid inner parisian & conservative mentality that slow all tower proposal

Apparently you don't know very well the mentality of the inhabitants of wealthy suburbs like Issy or Boulogne-Billancourt (in front of this project, on the other side of the river).... Because they have exactly the same mentality as inner Parisians.
(I know it especially because some of my friends, who grew up in Paris intra-muros, now live in Issy and/or in Boulogne, or in Medon which is located less than one km from those hypothetical towers)

So let's wait and see if those towers will be built... or not !



PS:Oh, and BTW, apparently there are already several opposition groups against this project...

That new corthouse is ugly as hell.One of the worst tower ever designed by Renzo Piano.
I miss the elegance of Aurora Place and other towers that he made.
