Willy Blumenthal will create around the city a social service project for the poorest people.
4 Chacun chez soi (Everyone in his own house)
The land was chosen for its accessibility from Saint-Denis by tram. It corresponded to what Hygienists expected due to its location along the Seine principles, and the quality of its construction, spaced to allow air circulation. Small individual gardens allow the workersome leisure, away from harmful influences he could find elsewhere.
From the outset, the pavilions are homeownership by lease.
