98 houses were built as part of a social housing complex built by the Parisian authorities for those on low incomes. This city block in Paris's 20th arrondissement, in the east of the capital, is the work of the architect Edouard Francois, who gave it the name Eden Bio. These picturesque houses, with their ecological materials and lush gardens, stand out in the midst of the city concrete.
Francois has used features that are common in this unfashionable area of Paris such as red roofs, wooden posts, zinc cladding and window boxes, aiming to create a fabric that is adapted to the context. There are no elevators either, only low, terraced maisonettes that "try to take the occupant's minds off the concrete jungle".
