Stanhope Gate Architecture won an invited competition in 2015 to design this major residential scheme in the Quartier du-Parc in the Paris suburb of Serris, a new town in Seine-et-Marne.
The scheme is set to provide 127 apartments in 7 buildings and 12 houses with a number of social housing units. The community of Serris which is part of the new town of Val d’Europe Marne-la-Valee, , is home to a number of high-profile projects by well-known architects, such as Leon Krier, Pier Carlo Bontempi and Maurice Culot.
Masterplan for the site and the design of the buildings follow the principles of traditional urban design and the concept of villas in the park, whilst maintaining the dense urban grouping of the buildings to align with the aspirations of the town’s masterplan. The Architecture of the building is based on the 18th century picturesque tradition using the villa typology and its adaption to multifamily units.
The Project is a joint venture between French developer OTI and The Disney Corporation. Stanhope Gate Architecture worked in collaboration with Paris based Paris Classical Architecture who acted as executive Architects.
