Le Millénium, Rennes

Here, it is all about creating an area for city living within a loose urban fabric with lots of available space. We took our inspiration from the tall urban forms around it and designed a communal structure wound around a planted courtyard garden. The building’s different layers highlight its wide range of typologies. It is a very unusual shape. The residential base combines half-buried parking spaces, modern split-level family flats with separate entrances, and halls arranged around a central patio. The smooth metal-clad corona houses the majority of the various kinds of flats. They have outdoor loggias overlooking the garden.
