Conscious of the importance of this eco-district, our response takes into account the unique specificities of this lot.
A true example of architectural and ecological quality, this specific zone will allow for the articulation between the different surrounding urban fabrics: the ‘Agnettes’ sector, the Chandon-République eco-district and the ‘Calmette’ sector. This is a pivotal position, at the intersection of the town’s different construction periods.Read more: Villanova Icône
The building’s volume works alongside the differing scales, creating a sculpted fan effect. The implementation of intermediate floors allows a sequence to emerge within the building’s volume. The retail units, porches and hallways embellish the ground floor, creating a pedestrian level volume.
Transparency, depth, various perspectives and porosity enrich the town by offering a dynamism and liveliness around the perimeter of the project, and the landscaped garden at the heart of the block merges and blends with the local surrounding park.
Located in a strategic area, this project is an urban signal that structures the new neighborhood.
