The demolition-reconstruction operation being carried out in the Saint-Cyr district forms part of a one-off urban fabric conversion exercise and, as such, is dictated by the buildings already present. Our proposal intends to bring a breath of fresh air into the district by introducing an audacious architecture while at the same time conserving the urban logic of a dual corner alignment. The two large buildings are designed as a complex of “stacked” blocks. A refined three-level base aligned with the adjacent building envelopes provides the support for an upper volume that develops various types of exterior spaces. The heart of the plot has a calmer typology expressed through five detached houses and a small collective building (six storeys) laid out around a cooperative vegetable garden.
