The Flower Tower
“The hero of the movement to dissolve the boundaries between architecture and nature is Edouard François, who set up his practice in Paris in 1998. In an early project, he commissioned a “green wall”: the type of tapestry of plants fixed to an external wall that has become a fashionable cladding for boutique hotels and shopping centers. But the client turned off the water system in order to save money.

Fleet Street Hill
This residential scheme design employs the practice’s trademark terrace/courtyard hybrid housing typology so that every home has its own street edge front door and good sized outside space in a ground floor courtyard and inset roof terraces. Arcaded frontages echo the industrial vernacular of Bishopsgate Goods Yard while defining an informal terrace area at the edge of the square for the use of each family. For the most part buildings alternate between three and four stories. The square is entered through two intimately scaled mews streets with steps cascading into the square from the adjacent railway bridge. A pencil thin tower is located on a prominent corner on the axis of Pedley Street alongside the entrance to the square.
