Context

The site is located in a suburban area at the gates of the city Triel-sur-Seine. The immediate environment is semi-rural, and principally composed of undeveloped lands, single-family houses, and traditional buildings, bordered by significant road infrastructures.

Challenge

To invigorate the neighborhood and to reinforce its connection with the rest of the city while responding to the need for housing.

Concept

The farmhouse is a sustainable and protective building type that has become the starting point of our reflection. We have reinterpreted this traditional architectural form in order to come up with a contemporary project. The project is based on the purity of volumes and restricted use of materials. Buildings are directed towards the heart of the plot in order to preserve it while creating visual breakthroughs thanks to crossing entrance halls. In order to create dynamic living spaces, different types of dwellings have been designed: collective and semi-collective housing as well as single-family house.
