To wrap up Courtyard Week edition 7, I have an unusual courtyard from the 7th arr., which doesn’t have very many interesting courtyards because most of the buildings were constructed in Haussmann era.
Square Sedillot at 133 rue Saint Domique, is a complex of buildings with a large, open courtyard, which is visible from the street because the gates are made of open ironwork. I couldn’t find any information or history about the buildings or when they were built. My hunch is they were built in the 1920s or 1930s because there looks like there is a Art-Deco influence in them, especially with the entry archway and lanterns. Also the planter in the middle of the courtyard looks Art Deco.
The courtyard is immaculately kept and I also loved the pristine white hydrangeas. These photos were taken with my I-Phone too.
