THE CONVERSION OF OFFICES INTO HOUSING
Address the housing shortage and crisis
Increase the value of vacant and obsolete assets
Adapt buildings to new standards in line with the ecological transition
Through the International Prize for the conversion of offices into housing, Greater Paris Investment Agency and the Maison de l’architecture Ile-de-France want to highlight some remarkable achievements of offices converted into housing, both in terms of architectural quality and usage-driven innovations.
Value project management and implementation by highlighting remarkable achievements
The winner’s project has to be the result of a close collaboration between a project manager carrying a strong will to fixing the housing crisis and a creative team on the general contractor’s side in which the architect’s role is central and leading.
The proposed conversion of offices into housing have to result in physical and concrete transformations of an offices building into housing. All or parts of the achievement (or series of achievements) shall be completed or in progress or with a building permit by the time of application.
Projects can either be conducted on French territory or abroad, in urban or periurban area and completed within the last 5 years.
