Our intention for these three blocks, which were doomed to a standardized housing estate operation, was to recreate an integrated part of the town, rich in different lifestyles and strong in terms of developing a neighborhood.
The project brings together collective, intermediary and individual housing types that share the same architectural style and adapt to the various typological variations. Block B, essentially representing collective housing, is “porous”, creating dual aspect views and incorporating car parks and exterior accesses within a system of decks and walkways.
Block A provides an alignment of two-level town houses positioned between the street and a private lane. Based on individual houses, block C is designed at an intermediate scale and groups together six plots, each with two stacked housing units and their own private gardens.
