The installation site and more widely the Promenade de
Warenne in the district of Manchester (urban refurbishment)
in Charleville-Mézières, has exceptional qualities
and very good views on very far landscape.
The presence of luxuriant vegetation , the soft topography
from North to South are typical of a site with particular
specificities that it is better to respect, to emphasize
through the architecture, the volumetry. Instinctively, we
thought of centring views, of offering favorable orientations.
From the outside, houses in strips are playing with the
transparency, the porosities on the landscape. The vegetalized
roofs are deleting the limit between constructed
masses and distant surroudings.
The design of the project is based on a first intention: to
offer a layout which is in harmony with the particularities
of the territory.
We shall work on a “landscape project” in continuity with
the urban intentions of the sector ANRU (developed by
the City of Charleville-Mézières and the urban planner
François Daune).
While respecting and integrating the intimacy of inhabitants,
the project aims to offer a balance between the
residents. It is pleasant and inviting and is generating
meetings. The use of high-quality materials promotes the
“ well-being together “. Our answer to the program means
creation of collective practices and social link while respecting
people’s autonomy.
