The Bureau's actions

In order to facilitate the search for premises by professionals, the City of Paris has set up a dedicated platform listing the vacant premises of social landlords and Semaest, and a form for requesting premises from GIE Paris Commerce, available from the Office's real estate division.

The City of Paris also provides financial support to social landlords for the rehabilitation of premises for creative professionals.

Several real estate projects have seen the light of day: the Villa du Lavoir, which with its 1,000 m² houses more than twenty designers, or Métropole 19, whose redevelopment of 3,000 m² has made it possible to accommodate some thirty companies. The eight premises of the Caserne des Minimes, which will be inaugurated in 2020, will add to a park of seven sites of 18,085m² dedicated to fashion, design and arts and crafts.

Focus on the Villa du Lavoir

Scenographers, upholsterers, textile designers, jewellery designers, stylists, stained glass designers and printers... These are just some of the artists who have been occupying the new workshops of the Villa du Lavoir, a veritable artisanal city dedicated to creative industries, fashion and crafts in the 10th arrondissement, since June 2019.

This programme includes workshops with a total useful area of 950 m² and 7 social housing units. The RIVP, the town hall of the 10th arrondissement of Paris and the Arc de l'innovation Grand Paris had joined forces to launch a call for applications which designated 12 winners.
