Contexte

This project, located on a site formerly operated by SANOFI, is part of a global program for the requalification of the site. This program encompasses a residential building of 190 units, rehabilitated offices, and a students house designed by COBE architects.

Challenge

The ambition of this program is to galvanize this district of the city of Bagneux, located in the center of the city. The challenge was to create a link between two different urban fabrics: single family houses in the North, and collective housing in the South.

Concept

The architecture of the building is contemporary and adapted to the environment. Volumes are shaped in order to create spacious outdoor areas to improve the quality of each apartment. Openings are imagined in such a way that it brings natural light in each apartment, thus contributing to residents’ well-being and allowing energy savings. High-quality materials are intensively used to ensure buildings and façades durability (bricks siding, concretal lasur…).
The unique volume is recovered by different materials that create various heights and depths. The interplay of façades’ faults forms a skyline that echoes the city, reinforces the quality of life in the courtyard, and brings more natural light.
