SOCIAL ? HOUSING !
Form the site atmosphere we choose a closed shape building form, but not isolated. A perimeter form around a central outdoor common space thus resulting an interior garden protected from the aggressive external factors ( pollution, dust & car emissions ).
There is easy pedestrian access to the arranged promenade. We formed three main entrances to the site, two from the streets, and one for tanners, that provide access to the underground garage and ground floor retail space supply.
The gradual effect in the volume towards the Somes River provides the necessary light for houses and for the courtyard on the ground floor, but also helps to smooth the urban tissue
Dull hallways, long and lightless were replaced and completed with a strung enlightened of broken trails with protected access to the apartments, so following halls were made public, and now private rooms oriented and this area get a glaze of translucent and natural ventilation.
