CONSTRUCTION OF JAURES PRE-SCHOOL CENTER  LOCATED IN ATHIS-MONS

   

Through its position, the new building will complete the school complex while reworking its main entrance. Imagined as an element inserted into its river and railroad territory, the building is placed on a base that will permit the children to avoid too great exposure to the street while transforming the constraint induced by the level of the highest water into a project opportunity.

Its architectonic concrete envelope is considered an element that is both protective and one that changes the image of the different temporalities and is connected to nearby activities.

CONSTRUCTION OF A RESIDENCE OF 110 UNITS FOR STUDENTS LOCATED IN THE 19TH ARRONDISSEMENT OF PARIS A STONE’S THROW FROM THE CENTQUATRE CULTURAL CENTER, INCLUDING A BAR-RESTAURANT, TWO AGRICULTURAL GREENHOUSES AND A ROOFTOP

   

The Cinquante-Six project emerged from the dualities characterizing a context that was materialized by the juxtaposition of a high building and a low building negotiating between the scale of the street and the scale of the city. Starting from this question of duality, the project made possible the development of domestic uses linked to the scale of the large landscape.

Working from a dense program, our intention was to integrate the building as an abstract element and not a traditional architectural façade. Its materiality, stemming from the shell’s construction process, gives it a strong presence: like a surging volume belonging to the ground it calls us back to earth, to its territory. There are several contrasting ambiences: through its dark hue, the Cinquante-Six recounts the depth of the earth to us, its very clear and light interiors recall the many possibilities of inhabiting spaces.

CONSTRUCTION OF SPORT CENTER AMANDIERS IN PARIS

     

The position taken for the T.E.P. Amandiers is based on an urban strategy that is founded on the retrocession of a part of the project’s area in order to create a public space intended for the inhabitants. Located in a dead-end and deteriorated street, the ambition of the new sports structure is the urban renewal of the Banane district.

The volume is designed as a unique and uniting identity between the build and the covered sports fields. The construction system and the materiality of the whole make it possible to define an identifiable system on several scales. From the relationship to the neighboring buildings to proximity use, the new T.E.P. is designed to appropriate its context. The facility is organized in such a way as to permit a fluidity of accessibility and use while guaranteeing access control.

The envelope’s principle responds to the concern for immediate readability by making a choice based on the qualities of the interior ambiences and the different appropriations. On the ground floor, a concrete wall bordering the street serves as a support for street art. The rest of the envelope is treated with cladding in micro-perforated metal panels. This treatment is also used to cover the playing fields to guarantee protection against rain and direct sunlight.

EXTENSION AND RESTRUCTURATION OF UNIVERSITY RESTAURANT LE PARC

   

Le site du Restaurant Universitaire Le Parc à Cergy est au cœur de l’Université Paris Seine, constituée de nombreux établissements supérieurs et d’entreprises. Le restaurant est implanté au bord du Parc François Mitterrand, un espace paysager faisant partie intégrante de la ville de Cergy et de son histoire.

L'organisation spatiale du kiosque a été pensée pour faciliter le travail du personnel et améliorer la qualité de vie des usagers. Le kiosque est divisé en deux parties distinctes . La "zone technique" est proche des espaces de monte-charge et est totalement opaque avec un bardage bois. Elle bénéficie d'une entrée personnel, d'une entrée import et d'une sortie export. La partie restauration est ouverte sur le paysage, transparente et traversante.

Elle peut fonctionner de manière totalement indépendante, sans que la partie technique soit ouverte. Le bâtiment est clairement orienté vers le paysage avec sa toiture en pente. Cette forme est un signal, elle surgit du parc pour inviter les usagers à venir et contempler la nature. Elle permet également de souligner l'entrée du kiosque, positionnée devant l'entrée du Restaurant Universitaire.

CONSTRUCTION OF A BUILDING OF 5 SOCIAL HOUSING UNITS IN COURBEVOIE

   

The architectural position was to work on the transition between the public space (the city) and the private space (the home) as an active between-the-two so that a qualitative threshold between the exterior and the interior could be built. Located in a dense context characterized by both two-story townhouses and 1960s apartment houses, the project fashions a link between the two scales by creating a simple and homogeneous volume.

To lighten the relationship of the ground to the built mass, the ground floor volume has been pushed back to the interior of the plot so that, on one hand, a buffer space was created and, on the other, exterior corridors serving the units on the upper floor could be positioned in the rear.

The building benefits from the alignment on the street on this shallow plot to transform the vertical and horizontal circulations into genuine collective spaces.

La création du futur équipement s'accompagne d'une réflexion globale de réaménagement des espaces publics du quartier Orly Parc :

- valoriser les interconnexions par des aménagements concrets

- faire évoluer les aires-de-jeu en espaces ludiques

- ouvrir les cœurs d’îlot par la création d’espaces de rencontre autour d’un square

- insérer une dimension publique entre l’intérieur du bâtiment et les espaces publics nouvellement créés en dégageant un large parvis sur le parc et par opposition, une placette entre les arbres.

EXTENSION AND REHABILITATION OF A SCHOOL LUNCHROOM OF A 1970s SCHOOL COMPLEX

 

Sited on a block comprised of several buildings that also have extensions and separate exterior spaces, the project’s approach concerns work on thresholds, circulations, interior-exterior itineraries as fertilizers of the spatial concept.

The volume of the extension takes form through the definition of a double wall that asserts its belonging to the school without taking away from the value of the existing building.

In a context in which the relationship of the lunchroom and the schoolyard appears very weak, the extension enables the relationship to be strengthened.

The added volume takes advantage of the large lateral openings to the courtyard then a tree-lined space while framing the views toward the playing field.

Coté rue, le projet affirme un traitement des pleins et de vides en relation avec les immeubles avoisinants situés avenue Simon Bolivar et rue Pradier afin de créer une continuité du front bâti. Le rythme de l’enveloppe a été calibré afin de garantir son intégration harmonieuse en parfaite relation avec ses avoisinants.

Coté coeur d’îlot, les ouvertures sont volontairement du même gabarit que celle de la façade sur rue pour permettre une homogénéité de la totalité de l’ouvrage, mais aussi afin de simplifier la mise en œuvre et la maintenance.

La volumétrie en gradinage permet au bâtiment de s’affiner au fur et à mesure des étages, permettant de dégager les vues.

URBAN RENEWAL OF DOMAINE BEAUREGARD

     

En regardant et en "habitant" Beauregard, le travail d'enquête a permis de définir le site en trois territoires habités : le versant, les îlots, le sous-bois. Notre stratégie est de réinterroger le paradigme de ce "Quartier Jardin" pour considérer Beauregard comme un "Parc-Habité". Définir de nouvelles façons d'habiter et d’y vivre, intensifier les qualités intrinsèques de cette cité-jardin en optimisant le foncier et en revalorisant l'existant, tels sont les enjeux du projet qui prennent en considération l’histoire et le patrimoine du quartier.

CONCEPTION AND CONSTRUCTION OF 60 SOCIAL HOUSING UNITS WITH WOODEN STRUCTURE

   

On this site with strong contrasts in which several scales are mixed and through its landscaped character, the conception of 60 social housing units required an integration permitting a negotiation that is both spatial and organizational. The organization of the built masses responds to a multi-typological logic that fits with its surrounding fabric. On one hand, the project aims at consolidating the fabric of single-family houses through sparsely sited housing units to reinforce the global identity of the nearby area. On the other, the rest of the units are organized around two volumes that negotiate a gradual change in scale.

We therefore designed a residential unit of houses in strips and small apartment houses that create a planted continuum intended for public use.

So as to preserve the existing hydrology, the project was designed as a global ecosystem in which the architectural and landscape systems are mixed with technical choices in order to make a whole that is coherent and qualitative.

The building were built with a wooden structure and with most of the materials biosourced to strengthen the biodiversity on the site and decrease the energy impact of the operation. The project proposes a discreet architecture that serves a landscape with the presence of several systems making it possible to establish several way of inhabiting that strongly resonate with its context.

En se situant comme une porte d'entrée de la commune, la future salle des fêtes devient un élément structurant du territoire de la vallée de la Mauldre.

Dans un site autonome à l’écart de toute urbanité, elle construit un dialogue fin aussi bien avec son contexte immédiat qu’avec le grand paysage. Son échelle architecturale est aussi à apprécier à travers une dimension multiple.

Le bâtiment est conçu avec trois matériaux: du béton apparent teinté dans la masse afin d'ancrer le volume bâti dans la terre. Des panneaux en bois cinq plis comme élément de transition entre intérieur et extérieur. De la tôle métallique comme élément léger qui dialogue avec le ciel et le grand paysage.

RENOVATION AND EXTENSION OF A PRESCHOOL BUILT IN THE 1960s COMPRISED OF 5 CLASSROOMS, A READING ROOM AND A REST AREA

     

The design of the extension of the preschool of Les Alliés de Chavannes arose from the landscaped environment and its integration into the site. The three new extensions are connected to the longitudinal circulation of the existing building so that the new volumes can be perceived as separate pavilions. As for the existing building, it was reconfigured to become the school’s backbone. Distinguished by a metal treatment, the new volumes permit a clear readability between the original building and the extension. The new volumes are organized in such a way as to guarantee fluidity and a programmatic organization that harmonizes with the school’s current functioning. Their siting is logically inserted between the existing trees while creating views toward the vegetation. Set on piles and with façades that offer each space different exposures, these new extensions enable all the children to feel like they are in a tree house!

RENOVATION AND EXTENSION OF THE RENÉ DESCARTES SCHOOL COMPLEX IN FONTENAY-LE-FLEURY BUILT IN THE 1960s COMPRISED OF TWO BUILDINGS FOR APPROXIMATELY 520 STUDENTS

   

On a plot located between a residential zone and a highway, the operation to renovate the school complex made it possible to create a new relationship between the learning spaces and the exterior environment. All the existing opening were questioned with the aim of creating large openings to change the scale of the built mass vis-à-vis the neighboring buildings. The buildings’ shell was rethought and treated with grooved mineral panels to give the buildings a new image in a periurban and landscape context. A wood structure extension was slid into the first level of the preschool to complete the global volume of the operation.

CONSTRUCTION OF 38 HOUSING UNITS

   

Le projet tire parti du patrimoine local et de l’hétérogénéité des formes urbaines de la ville de Yutz, allant de la maison ouvrière en bande, au pavillon unifamilial isolé entouré de son jardin jusqu'aux bâtiments collectifs se développant le long de la rue du Président Roosevelt, axe majeur de la ville de Yutz.

Le projet s’affirme comme une réponse à la nécessaire densification d’une ville caractérisée par l’étalement urbain. Le gabarit, la décomposition du bâtiment, les accroches sur les mitoyens et l’aménagement d’espaces intermédiaires sont autant de dispositifs qui participent à l’articulation des échelles domestiques et urbaines permettant l’intégration du projet dans son contexte.

La qualité des constructions locales ne réside pas dans leur particularité typologique car elles utilisent un langage architectural très élémentaire mais dans leur capacité à offrir par leur assemblage un panel de couleur et de dispositifs architecturaux et décoratifs finement articulés (ouvertures, modénatures, toitures...).

Le projet tire profit de cette «riche simplicité» pour interpréter l’architecture locale par le travail de la couleur et une attention particulière pour la mise en oeuvre d’éléments de menuiseries et de serrurerie, renouant ainsi avec l'identité de son territoire.

Tout en s’attachant aux potentialités locales existantes et futures Limay Grand Est se projette dans son territoire et s'affirme en tant que quartier périurbain équipé, durable avec une qualité de vie axée sur les potentialités de ses espaces ouverts.Pour cela trois orientations stratégiques sont identifiées auxquelles le NPRU doit répondre pour rendre possible cette vocation du quartier Limay Grand Est.

- Le quartier Nord sera inscrit comme polarité fonctionnelle grâce à ses nombreux équipements, ses paysages maîtrisés et équipés directement reliés aux habitations réhabilitées. Quant au quartier Sud, sa valorisation comme porte d’entrée du nouveau quartier reste primordiale

- Le territoire dispose d’ores et déjà de potentialités paysagères de la coulée verte, qui, en les valorisant et en les améliorant, requalifieront les espaces ouverts à l’échelle des résidences et du grand paysage.

- Le développement urbain de Limay Grand Est fera rayonner le quartier dans son territoire en l’inscrivant dans une démarche exemplaire de développement durable

URBAN STUDY OF THE BUTTE-ROUGE GARDEN CITY IN CHATENAY-MALABRY IN THE FRAMEWORK OF ITS HERITAGE, SOCIAL AND ARCHITECTURAL PROMOTION.

   

The Butte-Rouge garden city located in Chatenay-Malabry is one of the largest social housing operations of the 20th century in France. The project proposed is based on three reflection tracks:

- recognizing the Butte-Rouge’s exceptional position (the garden city of Grand Paris);

- relying on its heritage value (high quality of the landscape and urban composition);

- identifying four project spaces (the Avenue space and its transepts, the plateau space, the hilly space, the forest space) that guide the transformations that are strategic for the future of Butte-Rouge in Grand Paris.

A strong social, typological and economic mix. The master plan that results from it proposes creating around four strategic intervention zones new forms of inhabiting and working linked to programmatic and energy synergies. The improvement in the interaction of the housing units with the site’s landscape qualities and the topography becomes one of the major tracks of the project’s conception.

The strategic on the built heritage is based on the intrinsic qualities of Butte-Rouge with the aim of developing and diversifying its residential offering. The densification and renovation of this built heritage then becomes a supporter of the interventions relying on the project’s synergies. This vision incarnates an ecology of the project and ensures the virtuous transformation of the housing stock (about 4,500 units = 1/3 of the city).
