For Tectoniques, this project represents a relatively recent process of reflection and production – that of collective housing in an urban landscape. The team is familiar with the theme of habitats: accommodation for elderly and/or dependent people, tourist residences or private houses. But this is their first design for urban social housing. Les Symphonies is a building that contains 62 social housing units – 23 of them rented, 39 privately owned. It is located in Saint-Priest, whose architectural tissue is typical of the 1970s, with blocks that are linear, horizontal or vertical, and large areas allocated to car parking. The Mozart ZAC occupies a strategic position for the development of the community, opposite the town hall, in Le Portique de Saint-Priest. Covering 4.5 hectares, it adds substance and structure to the town centre, located on the tram line, enhancing the configuration of the public space.
