Villiers wood plays an important role in the quality of life of the inhabitants. In this territory with its dense vegetation, the quality housing estates served by Avenue de Chatron offer a way of living in the middle of the woods. The plot devoted to this operation extends this urban planning concerned with this framework and the growing need for social housing. Two R+1 buildings are installed there, interacting with each other through wood. The concept is inspired by the emblematic figure of the village farm organized around a central common garden with the appearance of a domesticated forest. In this garden, a winding path leads to the houses on the ground floor and those on the ground floor. These two crowns are punctuated by upper terraces that cut the architecture into a string of domestic scale pavilions. Living in the forest makes sense here.
