Residence Ladoumegue / Student Housing by ECDM

Residence Ladoumegue / Student Housing by ECDM

French firm Emmanuel Combarel Dominique Marrec architects (ECDM), designed this student housing building for 190 students in Rue des Petits Ponts, Paris, France.

The project brings together the two main characteristics of the site, the presence of imposing, solid built masses and the indefinite, fleeting landscape of the peripheric boulevard. The program is repetitive by nature: 190 student rooms, for 190 students of the same age, with the same education level. ECDM do not try to confront this repetition but rather create unity and identity, bringing together these 190 individualities. The repetition of a common module generates the façades, creating a monolithic image, contrasting with the lightness and aerial nature of the project.
