The proximity of a train station, a school, a youth center and a park along the boulevard Gouin led the municipal authorities to implement a new community center facilitating the integration of new citizens. The center includes a multipurpose room for 150 persons, classrooms of different sizes and a communal kitchen.

To avoid institutional stigmatization, the project adopts the morphology of commercial buildings built along the boulevard during the last few decades: a one story building with large fenestration and a overhanging roof on small columns. It explores the possibility to formulate an architectural language suited for a public building at the crossroad of vernacular commercial buildings and the miesian ideal.
