Paris 14TH






Terraces, balconies and private gardens in the very heart of Paris


For this cutting-edge, character creation, famous architect Francis Soler has brought his talent to light…

With their symbolic architecture, the 3 buildings concerned by this far-reaching project have made their mark on the street, and are conspicuously distinguishable from their surrounding style owing to the modern use of glass and its enveloping woven metal structure.

Overlooking Rue Campagne-Première, the façade resembles a curtain revealing large and lofty glass windows, a subtle reference to the early 19th century windows in artists' workshops. This produces a poetic effect while preserving the intimacy required by its inhabitants, without ever blocking the light that generously pervades all apartments.

Overlooking the garden and internal courtyard, there are 3 façades with large picture windows protected by a second 'skin' resembling a metal veil, lengthy intimate balconies, and a few privileged open-sky terraces.

As a hymn to this privilege, the residence offers a wide range of top-quality services on a daily basis.

Right at the entrance is the apartment of the concierge who is here to make your life easier. From here, your intelligent and connected letterbox will inform you in real time via your smartphone when you receive mail.

In your apartment, all devices, from the blinds to the heating, can be remote-controlled by home automation… And finally, for your safety, entrance is restricted by an electronic Vigik key and videophone.

  • - Indoor wood flooring that extend out onto the balconies
  • - 5-point locking system on individual front doors
  • - Gas central heating
  • - Roof solar panels to heat the water
  • - Parking spaces for electric vehicles
  • - Car park with 24h surveillance
Résidence 8 campagne-première


To live at 8 Campagne Première is to have the privilege of enjoying views of the large and carefully landscaped central garden surrounded by the 3 buildings that enclose it like a showcase.

This symbolic and easily identifiable element is made up of several different invigorating and dreamlike atmospheres. Thanks to a paved pathway that runs through the middle of it, inhabitants enter a verdant world completely secluded from the busy street. With its many trees, different essences, and sometimes Japanese style, it is the ideal place to rest in the shade of its green and leafy branches. To delight your senses, many perennials have been planted to embellish this haven of peace, and add colour and scent throughout the year.

Further still, and hidden behind the building, is an even more secluded garden that extends and opens out onto a protected green area. Here, stone terraces, plants and shrubs produce a peaceful environment where a privileged few can come to relax…

This open and welcoming ensemble is the work of designer Olivia Putman and highlights, through the effects of contrast, the architect's excellent work on light. The metal and glass features of the façades resonate with noble and natural materials such as wood, brass and stone.

As a subtle reference to the artists who still haunt the site, a peaceful and discrete atmosphere pervades throughout, weighted by a huge and full-length bookshelf, making this area ideal for relaxation and contemplation, whatever the time of day.


« Vavin » the audacious with its contemporary lines, contents and materials.
« Raspail » the nostalgic with its vintage and uncluttered design « Luxembourg » the classic with its discrete charm and noble material.

Thus are the exclusive multiple worlds imagined by the famous interior architect.
You can thus select one of the three environments with their luxurious finishing and services, true reflections of Olivia Putman's passion for this illustrious address.


The artists

Francis Soler, Architect

Grand National Prize of Architecture,
it is revealed by some of his most iconic achievements

Francis Soler réalisation Francis Soler réalisation Francis Soler réalisation


Francis Soler graduated from the Paris-Villemin School of Architecture, and has been a member of the French Order of Architects since 1976. In 1994, he created "Francis Soler Architecte", of which he is the CEO. Although some twenty of his buildings have been built to date, he is undoubtedly best known for his Paris International Conference Centre project.

From abstract to figurative, he is actively involved in all forms of architecture, and often gives his projects an important part to play in city life, like so many works of art. For each context he offers a different, unusual and daring solution, because his work is a combination of rational considerations and atmospheres, which, he believes, is what effective architecture is all about.

He pays as much attention to "small" buildings (housing, artists‘ workshops, offices) as he does to more prestigious, cultural and urban works (‘Les Frigos‘ and Ministry of Culture & Communication in Paris etc.). In 1990, he won the French Grand Prix of Architecture and was appointed Commander of the Order of Arts and Literature in 2005, following completion of a building in Paris known as "Les Bons Enfants", then became Knight of the National Order of the Legion of Honour.


Although universal, architecture is the result of a sophisticated and solitary process.

It is the offspring of highly symbolic action, even where domestic architecture is concerned. It must therefore, and without ambiguity, reflect the initial request while aiming for its ultimate refinement, without ever compromising on essentials or what makes up its foundation: its coherence. The connecting thread that runs throughout is a golden one, resolutely modern and with not a hint of nostalgia. The only concessions to be made to history are those of one‘s intelligence, when it impartially opposes a work of art and its creative process.

In so doing, one takes pleasure in thinking that architecture is nothing more than a series of vibrations and its result all the more to do with adjectives and qualifiers. It therefore becomes intelligent, precise, amusing and amused, varied, insistent, ironic, flippant, hybrid, elegant, critical, beautiful, attentive, open, keen, inventive, distinguished, enchanting and inexhaustible, even going as far as to forget the subject.


This building, located along Rue Campagne-Première, is an essential address, as it is located within close proximity of Boulevard Raspail and the great Jardins du Luxembourg.

Its strong identity is based on its rich past, its history related to painting, sculpture and literature. Great names are attached to it, names such as Elsa Triolet, who stayed there, Aragon, the illustrious Fujita, Klein, and more recently the visual artist Jean-Pierre Reynaud. So beyond its geographical location, it is the reflection of contemporary artistic expression, a bearer of memory and boundless energy. As with a lot of my work, my inspiration therefore came quite naturally. It was expressed as a list of extremely specific and deeply modern words, with steel and stainless steel for its more immaterial features. Its glass and woven metal elements reflect the sunlight, the surrounding city and put humanity in its rightful context.

The idea for Campagne-Première was to embody the location, while relying on its former artists and writers, moulding and transforming the creative passion they left behind, and using it as the basis of a work of architecture.

Inasmuch as people live indoors but always need to maintain a link with the outside world, be it urban or landscaped as in Saclay or Paris, it was essential to include balconies or loggias. It was important that people should be able to step outside, see their surroundings, invite people over, and to ventilate and open up spaces, by which I mean the possibility of extending indoor flooring outside. This inner/outer connection is undeniably one of the key features of the building.

As for the garden at the centre of the housing block, it is the heart of the operation, more so than the architecture in a certain measure. It is the symbolic and identifiable feature of the operation; paradoxically dreamlike, dynamic and even humanistic…

Olivia Putman
OLIVIA PUTMAN Interior Architect

Born into a family of artists, Olivia Putman studied Art History, and developed a passion for Chinese landscapes and the Renaissance...

At the end of the 1980s, she embarked on an adventure known as 'Ephemeral factories', an association devoted to rehabilitating disused sites to be used as artists' workshops, and became very interested in Land Art. For several years she worked with landscape architect Louis Benech, helping him to develop the Tuileries and Elysée gardens.

In 2007, Olivia Putman joined the Putman Studio at Andrée's request. She imposed her own free and generous lines, devoting as much energy to luxury hotels (Sofitel Arc de Triomphe, Can Faustino in Spain) as to work spaces, always seeking to combine comfort and elegance of lines with exacting functionality.

In 2015 in Los Angeles, she won the prize for Best Design for her tap collection Métamorphoses.

These gardens evoke a voyage through time and space,' such are the words chosen to describe the work of David Besson-Girard in 30:30 Landscape architecture, the international anthology for 2016 published by Phaidon, proving that this landscape gardener is as sensitive to nature as he is to the arts and the senses.

Over the past twenty years, David Besson-Girard has completed numerous highly referential projects, projects that are as cultural as they are symbolic, and come into contact with a wide range of contexts, sometimes historical as with the gardens of the Hôtel de la Monnaie or more industrial with the banks of the Saint-Denis canal. This remarkable approach has elicited only praise. Some of his greatest rewards include two gold cups during the Victoires du Paysage event and the Prix de l’Équerre for his Anneau de Mémoire war memorial park at the cemetery of Notre Dame de Lorette, in collaboration with graphic designer Pierre Di Sciullo and architect Philippe Prost.

Among other things, he has completed the following highly referential projects:

  • - the garden of the Pôle Scientifique & Technique (École des Ponts et Chaussées) on the Descartes campus in Marne-la-Vallée, alongside architecture by Jean Philippe Pargade
  • - the garden of the former cartridge factory in Bourg-lès-Valence, alongside architecture by Philippe Prost
  • - Marie Trintignant Square, along the banks of the Seine in Paris
  • - the gardens of the faculty of law in Limoges, alongside architecture by Ateliers 234
  • - the banks of the Saint-Denis canal in Aubervilliers and Saint-Denis, in association with Catherine Mosbach
  • - the garden of the French Embassy in Warsaw in Poland, alongside architecture by Bernard Zehrfuss and Jean-Philippe Pargade
  • - a vegetable garden grown in pots along one side of Rue de Venise in Paris, in collaboration avec Michel Corajoud

David Besson-Girard has been a Departmental Council of State Landscape Gardener since 2001. He teaches at the École Nationale Supérieure du Paysage in Versailles where he was appointed visiting lecturer in 2002. Since 2010 he has been teaching at the École Supérieure de l’Architecture des Jardins in Paris.

Benoît Luyckx, French sculptor of Belgian origin, was born in 1955. After graduating from École Boulle in 1976, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris prior to deciding to devote himself fully to sculpture. He has a passion for architecture, and his monumental works of art have been commissioned by public and private order alike (the Chanel headquarters in Neuilly-sur-Seine, the law courts in Évreux, the French Embassy in Phnom Penh in Cambodia…).

He now exhibits his works in various galleries in Europe and the United States. For Campagne-Première, Benoît Luyckx has chosen an interpretation of the 'Duo' theme he is so fond of, made up of two vertical sculptures, the draped and smoothed curves and contours of which echo the lines of the other. He has chosen to work with Bleue de Soignies stone quarried in Belgium. The textures and nuances of this sculpture are intended to respond to the surrounding vegetation, producing a play of light that will add to the harmony of the location…



In this area with a rich past, History, Knowledge and Culture go hand in hand. Its characteristic charm has never ceased to attract the greatest artists and the elegance and refinement of its imposing architecture, green and leafy terraces and the Jardin du Luxembourg are sure to appeal to you.

The intellectual and artistic life that has flourished here since the 19th century still rings with the meetings and lively discussions of the avant-garde scene: Picasso, Apollinaire, Matisse, Zadkine, Léger, Hemingway, and more. The 'Ecole de Paris' and the 'Lost Generation' rubbed shoulders here during the Roaring Twenties, making the crossroads of Rue Vavin and Boulevards Montparnasse and Raspail, the cradle of the two brasseries La Coupole and La Rotonde, the 'very navel of the world' according to Henry Miller.

Yet the area's prestigious schools have also always been at the origin of its reputation, such as the Ecole Alsacienne, Saint-Sulpice and Montaigne schools (Junior High and High). The energy of student fervour and intellect are still very present in Rue d’Assas, Paris Descartes University, Pantheon-Assas University, Mines ParisTech… giving them a uniquely elitist character.

In addition to its literary cafés and schools, this rich and diverse area also boasts numerous art galleries, famous fashion stores, top-quality restaurants and secret inner courtyards… So many sources of wonder and fulfilment for your enjoyment.



From legend to confidential location, discover a popular street on the Left Bank…

Rue Campagne Première takes its name from a general who wanted to commemorate his first military campaign, the battle of Wissembourg during the 18th century. It enjoyed its heyday during the Roaring Twenties.

As the cradle of intellectual and artistic life, it welcomed the most eminent representatives of the School of Paris, including Foujita, Soutine, Modigliani, and Chagall. This close-knit community met in cafés such as La Closerie des Lilas to listen to the verse of surrealists like Aragon and Eluard, prior to returning home to the Hôtel Istria, a favourite haunt for Picabia, Duchamp, Man Ray, Kiki de Montparnasse, Satie, Rilke, Tzara… Rue Campagne Première is still home to some of the loveliest artists' workshops to have been built in Paris during the early 20th century, all of which bear witness to this agitation.

Since then, it has also become a reflection of architectural and urban aesthetics, with a certain eclecticism, combining Haussmannian, art nouveau, art deco, modern or brutalist buildings.

The wealth of this street has now been further enriched with a new architectural ensemble; a confidential location full of character…
