This 40-unit apartment building is located on the "Les hauts de Grippé" allotment on the immediate outskirts of the town of Cesson-Sévigné, a municipality in the Rennes conurbation. Located on the outskirts of the East ring road and the Porte de la Rigourdière interchange, the city of Cesson-Sévigné is one of the privileged gateways to the city of Rennes.
This strategic location is matched by a strong and emblematic response. The project of lot F13 reflects, as much as the other lots, the general ambitions of the allotment: to be in immediate contact with the great landscape of the Bourgechevreuil urban field to the north, and to maintain a connection with the Rigourdière business area to the south. Its balconies and terraces provide generous and qualitative external extensions to the upper floors. Their architectural expression, resolutely horizontal, is displayed as broad architectural features drawn from the Cessonnais horizon. The project, although guided by simplicity, economy of means and sustainability, proposes a strong contemporary architectural identity. Fragmented, oriented, subjective, it evokes a new urban and architectural history of a district turned towards humans and their uses. Here, the dolce-vita seems to be manifested by the draped effect of the railings, fine protective filters for private outdoor spaces. The building is thus lively, light and airy.
