At the corner of rue Curie and rue Emile Duclaux, in the centre of Suresnes, stands a building with a completely renovated look. Visible face of a heavy restructuring and an over-elevation, it is a reconversion of a tertiary building from the 80s into a building of 41 contemporary flats.
This exercise reveals the flexibility of the existing building. It is clear that the transformation of this generation's tertiary sector, with its low floors and repetitive structure, lends itself well to this.
Behind this distinguished street façade, clad in light-coloured bricks, are comfortable, generous flats with large wooded windows. In the heart of the block, it unfolds a vocabulary of large terraces intimately nestled in the greenery.
The result is sober and wise, integrated into a city where architectural periods dialogue calmly but where neighbourhoods must constantly reinvent themselves.
