A project at the heart of a territory born of modern thought.
34 social housing units
Pierrefitte sur Seine (93) France
The project is located to the south of the Grand Ensemble de Sarcelles-Lochères (the first major French ensemble built by Jacques-Henri Labourdette and Roger Boileau between 1954 and 1976), at the crossroads of the old town to the east and the ZAC des Poètes to the west. This site is at the heart of a territory born of modern thought, the starting point for reflection. Faced with these abstract architectures, with thin, smooth and spatially unstructured façades, the building proposes another relationship with the exterior, where the surface of the façade becomes thicker and becomes a place. For each dwelling, a private lodge/corridor is proposed as an entrance space, offering additional external surfaces protected from view. This system gives architecture a strong identity, based on a constructive realism where the assembly of raw materials seems both rustic and precise.
