A team consisting of MVRDV, ALL + Giboire has won a competition for the project Ilot de l’Octroi, a new residential redevelopment in the city of Rennes, France that will transform the area into a socially adhesive green community along the Ille et Vilaine rivers.

The complex offers green balconies, loggias and terraces, with trees and greenery from the public square connecting upwards following the curve of the façades..
