From the architect. The plan layout is grouped to form a compact building entity, providing both a coherent base for environmental performance concepts and a reply to the insertion of the program within the existing site. The density of the resulting model frees up the garden area and the facade of the building behind.

This ‘compacting’ of the building is the result of a study to optimise its volumetric constraints and orientation in order to gain a maximum of direct sunlight without penalising the existing neighbours. All apartments have a dual orientation which allows direct sunlight both morning and evening together with the additional comfort of cross-ventilation.

The operation takes the form of a series of blocks of progressive height, linked by veranda type walkways. This principle generates a cascade of landscaped elements at the heart of the building. The blocks are organised around compact, day lit services and circulation cores thus avoiding the ‘staircase syndrome’.

A series of measures have been undertaken in respect of sustainable design to give the project its ‘HQE’ status.

Refreshing!
Edgy and sleek with clean views.
Amazingly, we're going back to the basics.
It resembles to the 60's urban architecture.
