From the architect. The site is on the periphery of the city of Bayonne. On one side, we have small collective housings (R 4 maximum), and on the other side agricultural land.

- In the basement, parking for 45 seats allocated to housing. It fills the entire plot.

- Access to housing is through the north side through a corridor dressed with vertical blades glazed red. All apartments are south-facing. Each housing is extended by a balcony on the south side. 

The buildings are very simple in their form and are animated by colored elements such as screens or blades glazed colored red.

What up with Buhler's arbitrary scattered exterior panels. The project would be so much better without them. Its like he had this sophisticated refined idea that at the last minute, he decided to randomly throw on some panels. I mean, the only elevation shown doesn't even have them. Why, o why!

What a shame ! Bernard Buhler once was a clever and sophisticated designer, unlike many french architects. According to this building, he no longer is.

Hello, this building is very beautiful but the builder appears nowhere. Thank you for inserting the name of the promoter for more clarity into your publication.

These are the WORST apartment plans I've ever seen.

Totally agree. I wouldnt live in that building, even for money! It's really a shame that some architects favor the design instead of the functionality. A good building must have both.
