The post-Haussmannian dwellings in Plaine Monceau were originally built for the city’s lower-middle bourgeios. The selected area of 6 blocks is not a single project by one developer, but rather share similar features - the courtyard. These courtyards are hidden from the street, often shared and defined by 2-4 surrounding buildings of 5-6 stories high, each floor usually has 2 units.

1. POP/Ac and POP/Ha are estimated based on the number of habitable rooms (1125 habitable rooms per Ha in the area), assuming each room accomodates one people on average. Habitable room refers to any room in the dwelling unit except for kitchens and bathrooms. However, it is also possible that on average one person occupies more than one habitable room, in that case, the population density would be relatively lower. FAR is estimated based on plot ratio. Dwelling units per Ha, habitable rooms per ha and plot ratio refers to: Firley, Mr Eric, and Caroline Stahl. The Urban Housing Handbook. Wiley, 2009. p.275
