The Biscornet site in Paris lay abandoned for a long time. Its location is truly spectacular: slightly set back from the Place de la Bastille, where the rue de Lyon and the road running along the canal basin meet; on one side you have a perspective towards the Gare de Lyon, on the other a view of the Bassin de l’Arsenal. The architectural response provided by BP makes use of the trapezoid shape of the plot, the building abuts onto the neighbouring building then gradually tapers forward. The side blocks are clad in golden aluminium panels whose distortions give the façades an angular relief that plays with the light. When all the window shutters are closed, the continuity and unity of the material are entire; when the residents open them, the vivid colours of the window frames appear, like an exuberant lining alternating flashes of pink, mauve and orange. Biscornet houses 14 social housing units and Gallery Jacques-Henri Lartigue on the ground floor.
