The hedge shaped site on which this project had to be developed is located east of Paris in a low rise single family home neighborhood. Using the geometry of the site as a design guideline, it was decided to fragment the scale of the building in order to not just relate to surrounding environment but also to allow maximum delighting of all units. All building envelopes were designed using property offset constraints as well as zoning building envelopes. Lifting all building off the ground allowed creating a common garden area as well required surface parking space. A gradient color chart hints at the changing geometry and further defines the development in its surrounding. All ground surfaces are covered with concrete pavers allowing water filtration through the soil relieving city sewer systems. The general layout allows for increased landscape opportunities.
