The New World
Ivry-sur-Seine

The Ivry project is situated in the redevelopment of an iconic location: the former printing press of Le Monde (The World). The two-phase project launches first with a 14-storey housing tower and follows with an 8-storey student residence counterpart, both of which emerge from a unifying ground-floor plinth of commercial spaces. The two buildings offer large private or collective outdoor spaces in the form of loggias and terraces, and in the case of the student housing, a rooftop sport court. The matte concrete façade vibrates with its pleated texture, and the ground floors are animated on both sides by large shops along the street and by the glazed halls of dwellings on the planted alleyway.
