L'ÎLE-SAINT-DENIS, FRANCE- French studio Peripheriques Marin+Trottin designed an apartment complex on L’Île-Saint-Denis in the northern suburbs of Paris. It features balconies enclosed by a ribbon of perforated aluminum balustrades. The undulating form creates dedicated space outside each apartment and maintains a shared passage along the circumference of the building. The development is situated on a plot overlooking the River Seine, whose embankments are undergoing redevelopment ahead of the 2024 Olympic Games, to be held in and around Paris. The apartment project forms part of a master plan to transform a site previously occupied by industrial buildings into the L’Île-Saint-Denis river eco-district.
