IVRY-SUR-SEINE

Barely 5 km from Paris, Ivry-sur-Seine is a multicultural commune offering a rich architectural diversity linked, in part, to its industrial past.

The town, which borders the capital, is impressive for its geometrically shaped, non-conformist buildings, which give the architectural landscape a dynamic character.
On the Place de la République, you can see the Jeanne Hachette residential tower, an emblematic figure of the Beauvais resistance in the 15th century. This work was designed by Renée Gailhoustet, the city’s chief architect at the time. In collaboration with Jean Renaudie, she completely rethought the town centre’s urban plan. This project gave rise to the Jeanne Hachette shopping centre, for which it is internationally renowned.
Ivry-sur-Seine is a resolutely attractive town with its shops, markets and cultural centres such as the Manufacture des Œillets theatre and its eclectic programme. The city has also preserved its heritage linked to the manufacturing industry. Today, its renovated loft buildings create a contrast between industrial and modernist constructions.

A culturally rich city, which offers an ideal living environment for families or young people.

MALAKOFF

Located 100 m from Paris, Malakoff is a friendly, quiet and family-friendly neighbourhood.

The north of Malakoff is a pleasant combination of architectural residences, traditional houses and modern buildings.

Crossing the town from north to south, Avenue Pierre Larousse with its many shops is the lively heart of Malakoff. Here you will find the Théâtre 71, an art house cinema, a media library and a market that is very popular for its fresh local produce. In the summer, Malakoff residents are happy to meet under the plane trees of the Place de la Mairie for a drink.

The charm of the city is found in the small streets, where galleries and artists’ studios are hidden. Green spaces dot the area and offer families an ideal playground to relax, run, play ping-pong or practice tai chi. For sports enthusiasts, the green corridor links Porte de Vanves to Sceaux.
