ECO-CITE LA GARENNE in FOURCHAMBAULT, France by Guillaume Ramillien Architecture

 
January 9th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Guillaume Ramillien Architecture

In a city split by rail lines, neighborhood transformation through an appreciated “eco-city” must take into account its unique scales and existing qualities :

– the smooth downtown connexion via a footbridge

– the proximity of “La Garenne” woods with their rich arboreal heritage

– an ancient and deeply-rooted gardening culture in urban areas ; and vast open spaces.

The project is defined by a strong framework and visible public spaces that include the neighborhood in a fluid continuity between the Loire river and the woods.

At the edge of this continuum, the architectural supply is renewed and enriched on a domestic scale through various and unique architectural forms, synonymous with new ways of dwelling.

The articulation of constructed volumes forges a link between very different scales, without spliting houses and housing estate.

Constructions are proposed with a mesured density to provide the highest continuity between woods and neighborhood, and create an unifying landscape axis in varying sequences of ambience.

Each typology is adjusted to its specific situation while houses are arranged to preserve family privacy.

The architectural expression plays on a simple contrast between the minerality of white coated cellular concrete and the shimmering of metal.
