105 Social Dwellings + 18 Soho at La Chapelle International, Paris, France by Moussafir Achitectes
Hervé Abbadie

Moussafir Achitectes and Nicolas Hugoo Architecture has created a mixed-use development as part of a new district built on the edge of Paris city centre.


The project comprises 105 social housing units, 2 shops, and 18 SOHOs (small offices/home offices), in an area built on abandoned railyards.

It reconciles the high density of the city block and its environment with quality light and space for these new working and dwelling places.

The project takes advantage of the site’s specific features to generate a semi-public space appropriated by inhabitants recalling the friendly density of traditional Parisian superblocks, while the flats on the upper floors enjoy sweeping views of the capital's cityscape.


This project has been longlisted in the housing project category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
