Housing building B3E, Boulogne-Billancourt

The B3E apartment house is situated at the corner of the park avenue and a major side street. It consists in an apartment building set at right angles to the park and a block facing the garden, connected by exterior circulations. In expressive terms, the building is designed as a hollowed mass: two interlocking bodies are set slightly out of line, which leaves room for balconies that can serve as outdoor living rooms. The outside surface is in a pearl grey concrete, while the cladding on the inside is in wood, and the joinery and the metal rolling shutters are painted tone on tone.
