PRD1 in Le Havre, France by PHILIPPE DUBUS ARCHITECTES

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Article source: PHILIPPE DUBUS ARCHITECTES

Located in the Docks du Havre (76) area, this private ownership, 65-unit congregate housing project renews the venue’s gradually disappearing authenticity. It highlights a few snatches of the old, e.g. this small corner-building that the new building encloses, while expressing its contemporaneous signature with concrete and metallic casing. Following on an initial housing project on the same site, this latest project continues the idea of varying housing types: town houses, stacked dwellings and congregate housing, all of which comes together on three visual levels with unified metallic casing that magnifies Le Havre’s maritime light.

It is a project of great importance for Bayonne, not just due to its sheer size (some 70.000 m2 of built surface area) but also because it is the new gateway to the city. The brief is divided between two city blocks that contain social and free market housing, a shopping centre, a hotel, a small area of offices and car parks, and the central part that joins the two blocks, channeling the flow of car and pedestrian transit.

Article source: Pierre Marsan 

In this project, a forest delimits a vast area in the centre of a major heritage site in the City of Pau. The forest is crossed by a network of paths and clearings. A series of shelters and a sanitary facility define a large courtyard. The ground is deformed arbitrarily by folding and unfolding that create volumes where the ground, walls and roofs become a single entity.
