The project includes four volumes, differentiated by two typologies: a simple block and a double block. The double block is declined from the simple one, showing a patio as a void. The configuration of the volumes generates both interior and external spaces, solids and voids, private spaces and public spaces.
The project consists of two distinct parts: a compact and dense part stretches from Westinghouse Boulevard to the public square and the playground. It includes a commercial floor on the street level with a mixity of housing above. The second volume is more punctual. Attached to the playground, it hosts a social housing.
Program: Reconversion of the former Westinghouse Freinville industrial site in Sevran (93).
The project, part of a PUP (public/private partnership), is in a continuity of an urban study led by LIN. We took the opportunity to convert the wasteland of the former Freinville factory into a new district by defining new urban axes and creating quality public spaces that allow a certain density.
The project includes a mix of housing (senior residence, student and social flats, etc…), retail and underground carparks.
