This "Voltaire Nord" district of Asnières sur Seine, on the edge of Gennevilliers, has been the scene of a profound urban transformation since the beginning of the 20th century. Having abandoned its initial industrial vocation, the territory is divided into individual and collective housing, large tertiary complexes and abandoned wastelands that inspire future urban sewing projects.
The Îlot surrounded by Voisin, Beurier and Gabriel Péri streets is a case in point.
The project aims at the urban continuum by orchestrating a decreasing densification. On the avenue stands a collective R+5 which is declined from east to west, in resonance with the neighbouring parcels addressed along the two adjacent streets, in small housing units then in individual town houses.
The built typology frees up a protected garden, landscaped in various shrubby sequences, offering as many spaces for private relaxation and shared spaces. The alleys and passageways in the main buildings give a glimpse of the green heart of the condominium from the public roads in some places.
On avenue Gabriel Péri, a large sunny square where food shops and restaurants are located ensures the sought-after urban character.
Like a building set, the architecture operates a continuity and harmony of the whole through a systematic structural set, uniting loggias, large lounges or suspended gardens. A concept that satisfies a wide range of habitats.
The façades, clad in Terrazo, an ancestral material if ever there was one, display clarity and nobility as a counterpoint to a raw and faded environment.
