Programme: Diversity and density
Our method to determine building layout on the land has been to do series of tests on different solutions in order to see the potential for each sub-plot in terms of urbanity, density, economics, history and liveability.
A pivotal element between these two volumes announces the new sequence of Rue de Reuilly.
The slender thickness of the building (only 8 meters) is perceptible through the paced and random open spaces which reveal the barrack’s existing building in the background.
Slight cantilever over the public space marks entrances to shops and differentiates the commercial base from the student residence.
The entres-deux, the entrance transitions
A system of catwalks directly connects the existing building to the student residence.
The façades of the new housing, the pivot building and the plot building offer two interpretations of the inhabited metallic façade: a smooth building whose wide, regularly-spaced windows enhance the interior of the housing, and a building with rows of balconies which projects the housing outwards. The façade gives visibility to the different uses which in turn contribute to the architectural expression.
The public garden, breathing space in the city
91 social housing units, 140 student units, 1,200m² of commerces and activities. The programm includes the rehabilitation of one building of the caserne de Reuilly
