founder Félix Potin, Îlot Saint-Augustin

Framed by rue la Boétie, rue d’Astorg, rue Lavoisier and boulevard Malesherbes, this island site is an impressive collection of retail, offices and residential over seven storeys. The frontage is dominated by retail giant Monoprix, and proposed plans include converting the private courtyards into public spaces, with public art and sensitive landscaping, alongside enhanced residential accommodation. This remodelling, involving a collaboration between two respected Parisian architectural practices, will also deliver significant new retail space.
