Located in the very Northeast of the city of Bry-sur-Marne, the plot of land is shaped like a funnel and benefits from a very specific location with numerous peculiarities. In the heart of a transition fringe between two mainly suburban zones, the site is leaned in the RER bank. Its immediate discontinuous environment is abundantly wooded and is an exception in this dense and residential urban frame.
The team decided to mount two four-floor social housing buildings with simple volumes in this very specific plot. The plot's typology incited us to create compact and optimized buildings to confer on housing a qualitative character.
These two simple volumes are naturally inscribed in the plot's geometric shape, and the design aims for a material coherence for this built set that will forge the unity of the project. The remaining exterior space becomes planted areas.
