Context

The project is located dowtown Thorigny-sur-Marne, a ity in the Eastern Parisian suburbs, in the vicinity of the city hall and the train station.  The project mixes social care apartments, residential apartments and shops.

Challenge

To revitalize the center of the city and develop a new architectural image.

Concept

Given the strategic location of the project and its associated social mix, we have worked on the organization of the heart of the buildings as well as the organization of public space in and around the buildings.  The ground floor level, dedicated to shops, stands out with the use of black bricks to cover the base of the building.  In the upper levels, the change in the façade materials creates vertical series, thus providing a new architectural reading.  The principal angle of the project appears by balconies signing the project.
