Bartolo Villemard's approach stems from a social humanist involvement which outlines possible contexts relative to modes, program and use. Notions of use, comfort and domesticity are in fact the foundation of a series of studies that guides the agency to deliver quality housing.
In the vast neighbourhoods being redevelloped in the sector Clichy-Batignolles at the northern borders of Paris and which lie along disused railway land, one of their stand out structures is
a housing block featuring 200 "hanging gardens" (or exterior conservatories) which cover the height and breadth of the building's exterior, lending a noteworthy aspect and neatly proportioned volume. Throughout the year, one can eat with his family, read in the sun, cross his apartment from the outside.
