Winner of the reinventer.paris competition, Morland Mixité Capitale is an emblematic project involving the reconfiguration of the former Cité Administrative in Paris, located on the banks of the Seine, between Île Saint-Louis and the Marais district.
The design was entrusted to architectural firms David Chipperfield Architects and CALQ, the guiding principles based on key words such as opening up, mixed-use, sharing, innovation, artistic development and social responsibility. The new and renovated buildings will be mixed-use : offices, residential, retail, a crèche, a youth hostel, a hotel, a swimming pool, a fitness centre, a bar, a restaurant and an area devoted to art.
Running through the block will be a new internal street created to link Boulevard Morland directly to Quai Henri-IV, thereby generating new flows of circulation. The top of the tower, from which the public will be able to enjoy stunning views over Paris, will house the artistic concept developed by Olafur Eliasson and Studio Other Spaces which will be in the panoramic bar and restaurant.
Greenery will also be incorporated with the installation of inner courtyards, terraces for the use of the residents and even spaces devoted to urban agriculture.
