The geographical location of the site and the program of the ZAC “Entrance of the city” have for ambition the development of a continuity between Paris and Clichy-la-Garenne. The proposed density of the plot is much greater than that of bordering parcels, giving it an accentuated urban look and echoing the neighboring Batignolles district with the future TGI (Tribunal de Grande Instance) that appears in its field of view.
The building sets a unique standard of a new Parisian geography, which overflows its rigid boundaries to finally integrate the landscape of the suburbs in its definition.
The urban prescriptions of the ZAC allow the new building to achieve the ten-floor mark. And so an urban marker visible from the périphérique beltway is created, a reference point at the level of the neighborhood that dialogues with the tall buildings of the ZAC Clichy-Batignolles.
At a neighborhood scale, this exceptional height creates a morphological diversity that mitigates the effect “corridor” of the street.
The exterior rear wall cladding panels are arranged following the orientation of the façades for an optimization of the thermal envelope. The brick at the front façade allows for a very good building inertia, which creates a static facade while the sunnier garden façade vibrates thanks to its metal shutters. These louvered shutters promote natural ventilation, a good summer comfort and contribute to the peace and privacy of the terraces. The extensive green roof is seen from the périphérique beltway and from the avenue de la Porte de Clichy and it strengthens the marker effect of the building.
The proportions of the corner plot allow to create a compact L-shaped building, whose volumetrie aligns with the plot drawn by the PLU (Local Urban Plan).
The building’s concrete structure as well as its external insulation contribute to the thermal comfort as it naturally regulates the temperatures year round. In addition, the inertia of the façades enhances the interior comfort. The plot is optimized while creating an intimate garden façade and a more urban one overlooking the street. The two elevations are reflected in two cladding materials: brick for the north and west façades and perforated metal shutters for the south façade.
Particular attention is paid to the aesthetics of the façades facing the street and garden for a coherent and harmonious relationship with its immediate environment.
The image of the Bonnet Street building draws a coherent and homogeneous construction, linked to the elegance of the brick, vibrant in its colors and reassuring in the longevity of its material. From an energy perspective, the building creates a strong inertia on its north front preventing dispersion of the energy created.
The garden façade vibrates with the changing positions of the shutters as well as with the movement created by the perforated metal.
