Square Montsouris - Campagne à Paris

It's a beautiful Sunday and we decided to walk little Jude in one of the rare Parisian parks where dogs are allowed: Parc Montsouris, in the 14th arrondissement. 

I already wrote about this nice park in a previous postBut today, I would like to share with you pictures I took in a little nearby paved street, named "Square Montsouris", which I just discovered by chance and which I absolutely loved. 

The street is just 200 meters long and 5 meters large. Most of the 60 houses were built during the interwar period, in an Art Deco style. Painters and artists have lived in there. For instance, the last house, at number 51, designed by Le Corbusier, was the studio of painter Ozenfant. And almost half of these houses were built in red brick or ochre. They had been built as social housing for working classes. 

I am pretty sure that nowadays, these houses are priceless. But it's such a pleasure to walk along this quiet path and pay attention to all the tiny details on the different sides of the houses.
