These two buildings by Atelier Kempe Thill in collaboration with Fres Architects stand on what was formerly an industrial site at the foot of Montmartre. The complex is seen as a prototype for further high-quality yet affordable civic housing based on the model of the urban villa. A savings potential lay in the high density of the compact blocks.

The spatial programme comprises 50 public housing units, public facilities and a basement garage. The 19 × 20 m structures are linked by a planted courtyard. Their central access routes allowed a free location of the rooms along the facades. A distinctive feature are the peripheral conservatory spaces, which serve as a climatic buffer zone, protecting against noise and forming extensions of the living realm.
