The Orange of Ris residence was completed by Edouard Francois, and it stands as a noticeable feature for anyone entering the neighbourhood.

The design is done with a terracotta material, hence why the building is an orange color. Inside the residence are around 60 apartments for lower income individuals, so it's great to see that attention has been paid to the outside section of this housing unit. These updates can help contribute to how proud people feel to live in the place, and will help an individual's overall wellbeing. The terracotta material is also an interesting choice because it's not usually used for the sides of buildings, but rather placed on top for roofing instead.
