The project is comprised of two built compounds located within landscaped grounds. Each compound is composed of a platform, raised in order to accommodate a naturally lit car park, on which buildings tiered over three storeys are organised around a south-facing courtyard. The circulation network of each platform constitutes an extension of the slow traffic networks feeding into the block.
The buildings are organised in strata, becoming less compact as the floors go up. This progressivity thereby makes tactful use of tiered outdoor spaces on each level, which enjoy a particularly open view while preserving relative privacy. All dwellings thus benefit from an “open sky”, a terrace extending out from the main room, and, in most cases, two or even three orientations.
To enhance the monolithic aspect of the project, all facades are covered with small hand-moulded bricks in two-tone ochre and grey. The corners of the buildings feature specific modules reinforcing the monolithic aspect of this covering, while the aluminium-clad window embrasures underpin its elegance.
