A discreet and reduced architecture with hidden openings based on a compact and pure volume. One of the main intentions of the project consists in the insertion of a residential building with 7 living units in its direct surroundings, marked by detached and solitary buildings in an suburban context. The use of a single light coloured material (fibre-cement panels) for the façade gives the building a monolithic aspect and preserves the quiet appearance. The composition of the different volumes merged to the continuous grid of the façade blurs the clear differentiation of the stacked floors, indeed often characteristic for an multi-storey housing project. Each window has been individually conceived in order to frame different viewports or to manage the supply of natural lighting for the interior spaces. These lightly hidden openings play a major role in the desired sculptural image of this realization. The goal was to avoid the simple duplication of identical dwelling units. Here, densification is thought through individuality and this customisation following the wishes of the clients appears as the finalization of this work. Fra Une architecture discrète et sobre aux ouvertures dissimulées et aux volumes compacts et épurés. L’un des objectifs principaux de ce projet, était l’intégration de ce bâtiment de logements, se constituant de 7 appartements, dans son environnement directe à caractère fortement pavillonnaire. L’utilisation de panneaux de fibrociment de ton clair lui confère un aspect monolithique tout en préservant son apparence calme. Le jeu de volumes et le calepinage de la façade, a permis de brouiller la lecture des différents niveaux d’habitation caractéristiques d’un immeuble de logement collectif. Chaque fenêtre a été pensée individuellement en fonction des cadrages qu’elle pouvait offrir sur le paysage et de la lumière qu’elle pouvait générer dans les espaces intérieurs. Ces percements finement dissimulés participe à donner cette image sculptural voulu pour cette réalisation. Ici, le but était d’éviter la simple unité d’habitation dupliquée. La densité est pensée à travers l’individualité de chaque logement et ainsi, la personnalisation de chaque logement, suivant les envies des clients, apparait comme la finalisation de ce travail.
