Boucicaut Logements / Brenac + Gonzalez

© Stéphane Chalmeau

Stéphane Chalmeau shared with us this bricked housing building in downtown , France designed by Brenac + Gonzalez Atelier d’Architecture. It shows two different volumes, merging with both, the red roofs of the low height houses and the white volumes of the housing buildings next to it, demonstrating a great respect for the context.

    This is a nice example of modern work that tests new ideas in urban design; at the same time the exterior seems to achieve a timeless feel (although the interior is a bit over-stylized).

    This shows us the necessity of harmony in the architecture. That’s nice design.

    Any drawings Archdaily?
    Looks like a great ‘fit’ with the streetscape, scale and materiality of the neighbourhood.
    Nice work!
    I love architects with good manners.

    thanks. I like the contrast of materiality and the nice use of colour.

    Dear readers,

    I’m sorry, but as this project was shared by the photographer and not by the architects, we don’t have any drawings available
