Paris Streets

Paris Streets

Always on the search for examples of great streets and Paris did not disappoint. Each one with it’s own character and identity.

There was a lot of granite paving, but we also saw many beautiful streets with asphalt footpaths and carriageways. The wide granite kerb was a consistent detail. However it wasn’t the materials that made the streets (although it helped). It is the street trees, the scale of the built form and how it relates to the street, and the fine grain of the shop windows, doorways, canopies, alfresco areas and the mix of shops that really make them special.
