Homes - Talence - ALIENOR ATLANTIQUE (32 homes) – Building permit August 2014 - €2.000.000
An authentic monolith whose urban location, landmark quality and sheer visibility encouraged us to design this building along the lines of a rock weathered by time. The monolith is shaped by a multitude of prisms resulting from current legislation. By covering the full gamut of urban building constraints enabled us to adopt a sculptural approach further reinforcing the project’s originality. The erosion of the monolith creates multiple perforations, almost like lacework, weaving a precious fabric that is also a protective cover. This architectural stand bolsters the commitment to good quality social housing in the heart of the city by engaging a dialogue between the building and its surrounding public spaces.
