The village of Sainte-Eulalie sits about twenty kilometers from Bordeaux. The site is at the edge of the rural town’s center. On the site, the corner building is rehabilitated, and ten new apartments are created on the remainder of the plot. Taken together, the individual dwellings define a housing block, larger than the original mansion, which frames a communal courtyard in the center. The proposal is careful to offer the best exposure for each building, and the highest quality of space for each apartment, as well as the collective spaces between dwellings.

The party is arranged into three distinct sections, similar to the layouts of the surrounding wineries. The idea is simply to create a sense of one large house, rather than many small houses on individual properties. The facades towards the village are realized with a on site cast and washed concrete, reminding of the local stone used in existing buildings.

The result is an arrangement which is familiar as well as private, a mixture of old and new, where personal and collective interests merge.

Archdaily est un site pour les architectures "d'architectes" pas pour les pauvres maitres d'œuvres ou constructeurs incapables de qualifier l'espace. Où est la qualité arhitecturale attendue sur ce médiocre bâtiment consensuel ???

Etre architecte, c'est savoir s'adapter au contexte du site, au budget, aux demandes du client, et aux futurs utilisateurs. Il ne s'agit pas d'implanter un bâtiment qui sera plus une oeuvre d'art qu'une habitation, au nom de "l'architecture", sans prendre en compte tout le reste. L'ego de l'architecte ne doit pas être prioritaire.

Voilà un commentaire haut en arguments cher DL, constructif et d'un intérêt tout aussi relatif. Peut-être attendez-vous le systématisme d'une architecture spectacle sur ce site? Et bien non, il est contrairement à vous plus ouvert. Avez-vous oublié qu'il reste (fort heureusement)possible de faire une architecture simple et mesurée.
