Text description provided by the architects. The current site is built up on almost the entire surface and is occupied by industrial-style premises. We are planning to recreate an open courtyard by developing a large green area with the dimensions of a cloister. This is bordered to the East and North by 4 new houses, to the south by a warehouse converted into loft-style dwelling and on the street side by a new five-storey building providing various types of apartments. All enjoy a peaceful setting and a view onto this central, partly privatised green area.

A large street entrance provides a view of the interior garden. The volumes of the dwellings have been determined in the light of the face to faces, the various sizes and orientations so as to safeguard the intimate feel of each one and create a high-quality environment. A flexible, fractal language divided into green spaces responds to the restrained, structured style of architecture for all the facades. The access roads to the dwellings create various terraces, just like the branches of a tree.
