In one of Ricardo Bofill’s most iconic buildings, an apartment is for sale

The 775 square feet apartment, located in the Belvédère Saint-Christophe, in Cergy-Potoise, north-west of Paris, is worth €205,000.

It was put on sale an apartment located within the Belvédère Saint-Christophe, the famous complex on the Puiseau plateau – overlooking the Oise valley – signed by the Spanish architect and urbanist Ricardo Bofill in 1986. In the Axe Majeur district of Cergy-Pontoise, a garden city north-west of Paris, the house overlooks the Place des Colonnes, framing the monumental sculpture of the Israeli artist Dani Karavan that stands at its center.

The Belvédère Saint-Christophe is part of the postmodern movement, which contrasts the modernist desire for formal innovation based on the oblivion of tradition, and reintroduces classical composition and ornament, in a relationship to history that oscillates between the tribute and the pastiche.

Inside the building, each house has a double orientation, which allows to optimize the solar radiation and natural ventilation of the rooms and offers different views of the surrounding landscape.
