Description Original Language (French)
All our thinking starts from a tension to be established between asserting a presence and letting the view, the garden, the walkers pass through. De-saturation occurs through fragmentation, through small, highly verticalized volumes with a reduced footprint. The curves and counter-curves organize the plot. These vertical undulations reveal the ground and the sky; the full fills are at the service of these framings, of this work on the depth of field.
It is from the articulation between the park and Place Ravezies that we approach the redeployment of the site. This involves implementing a fluid deployment of the architecture operated as an extension of the ground. We therefore propose a landscaped urbanity made up of sequences and fragmented volumes which interweave voids and built volumes in order to put the neighborhood in relationship with its environment.
The buildings are designed like a topography, mixing empty and full spaces in a progressive management of height. The masses are cut out, sculpted to open up as the buildings gain height. Large terraces allowing a strong plant presence on the emergences are arranged there. There is thus, from the genesis of the project, the omnipresent affirmation of plants which, combined with a density in line with the dynamism of this metropolitan center, gives the project the capacity to contribute to the achievement of a green urban polarity, with biodiversity as a unifying element.
Our reflection also concerns the sharing of services linked to tertiary activities. The result is an image tinged with domesticity for these workplaces in order to offer a more open and less rigid living environment.
