Current project

The land is located at the edge of commercial district in a heterogeneous urban area composed of commercial and industrial buildings as well as villas.
The entire project consists of seven buildings. The buildings have a prominent ground floor in alignment with the “chemin des Combes”. The gaps between volumes on the ground floor are used to mark the main entrances (pedestrian and vehicles). The hall places the street in contact with the preserved garden courtyard and is used by the homes nestled in the sloping bank of the valley.
The floors offer very simple volumes laid out freely, opening on large terraces on the ground floor.
A building devoted exclusively to public housing is nestled in the heart of the island; its architectural treatment is same as that of the private sector.
