A New Face for Old Buildings
Morand Vaucouleurs | Paris, France

Croixmariebourdon’s six-story residential project is located on a large, elongated site that links two narrow residential streets in the heart of Paris. In order to upgrade the residential building, Croixmariebourdon Architects also added external insulation onto the facades, which are clad in small-format cement fibre Swisspearl panels treated like overlapping shingles. This small format is an unusual and interesting application of Swisspearl cladding. Like a knitted surface, the small-scale Swisspearl tiles in three sizes and shapes create a rhythmic pattern and lively texture on the facades. The external joinery is acrylic resin coated PVC. To integrate splashes of colour into the facade, each window has a colourful high-performance solar protection blind in red, pink, yellow, purple, or turquoise.
