    Text description provided by the architects.

    The first one, in alignment with Street General Chevert has got 3 levels (R+2). It includes common areas at the basement level, and part of the flats on the above floors. The second block connected to the first building by a volume in REGLIT, only has two levels (R+1) and hosts the rest of the flats. The two blocks are separated by a central glazed volume offering two living room floors allowing residents to welcome their family. Facade materials used for housing are ETERNIT panels on outside insulation, drilled by metal frames including lacquered wood windows. The random pattern layout of the fiber cement panels gives a certain flow on the facades, reflecting the movement of the street. The roofs are carved in 3 dimensions and coated with standing joint zinc. The architectural writing of this project is simple and effective, thus enhancing the volumes of the project and the noble quality of the materials.
