The shape of the building, like a snail, winds around a green courtyard, one part being used by the inhabitants, and an other part, by wild vegetation growing onto the block.
The housing is constituted of 191 social apartments on 7 floors, 2 nursery preschools for 90 children and a senior citizen’s club. 3 levels of parking are tucked underground, and two of them are used by the RATP (Paris Transport Company).
