RESIDENCE ECLA - Noisy le Grand 93160, presented by Oceanis
Or how to give a second life to an office building from the 80s that has become too big or unsuitable while respecting and enhancing the existing architecture. The renovation, inspired by Kintsugi, a Japanese art that allows to enhance a broken object and to sublimate it, did not try to hide the past of this building. Respectful of its architectural and technical qualities, it has adapted to the building, without deconstruction, cranes or nuisances for the surrounding environment.
In the same spirit, each sublimating a floor, and following this common thread of the "Kintsugi", six urban artists worked on the raw concrete walls, as in a huge accessible and non-elitist art gallery. The walls are repaired, ennobled, the marks of time underlined.
The building now has 708 housing units, 2640 m2 of common areas, services providing real comfort in everyday life, very high quality services while allowing very diversified budgets to be accommodated, for short, medium and long stays.

MAISON SAINT CHARLES Paris 75015 presented by Vinci Immobilier
The story of a bold rebirth. Both a renovation, construction and deconstruction project, La Maison Saint Charles brings together an intergenerational residence, guest rooms, shared workspaces, a restored neo-Gothic chapel, as well as a new residence of 35 apartments with top-of-the-range, the Hors du Temps residence.
Everything revolves around two landscaped and vegetable gardens, imbued with spirituality and serenity. This project revives the vocation of hospitality dear to the religious congregation that owns the place and combines social and intergenerational diversity. Another advantage of this project is that of placing the preservation of artistic and cultural heritage at the heart of the renovation.
