The project “Arc en Ciel” expands at the entrance to the neighborhood of Grand Park, to the corner of rue Portmann Huyard and Avenue Emile Counord in Bordeaux. The building, unusual in the neighborhood by its curved shape and colorful, hosts about forty homes and offices.

Positioned at an intersection and near a shopping center (which is part of a renovation project), it must manage its urban context, the flow of cars, tramway flows and thus pedestrians flows. This concentration has led to the creation of a square mineral easing movement and allowing the building to sit in the continuity of the public domain.

In appearance, the group consists of three layers:
– The ground floor: A grid of expanded metal wraps and mask a parking on half level of around thirty parking spaces. The grid that protects the ground floor of shots and theft will be a support for climbing plants.
– The R+1: This level is fully glazed office space. He comes to transition between the ground (traffic, pedestrian) and dwellings.
– R+2 and R+6: 5 levels of bands of colored glass STADIP, divided by the floor, wrap the housing part of the collective. Colored boxes out of the front and just break the rhythm of stained slides. We will see later that these advances are extensions of terraces or appartments.
