- Renovation of a former dealer of old iron into a social housing complex composed of a 4-flat building connected by a large common open space to 3 maisonettes at the rear of the site.
- The project consists in clearing and opening up the interior of the plot that was entirely built and making this portion of the street “breathe” thanks to a wide opening. The maisonettes are raised in order to maximise the amount of light captured and to accommodate a garage at street level. The buildings are clad with grey metallic sheets whose aspect reminds of the industrial past of the plot.[...]
A large circulation area is carved within the site and creates a wide meeting and playing area for residents.
The existing street front has been kept and it dialogues with the apartments through the volumes and the bridges/terraces.
