Collective living : housing, shops, library and public spaces
Encouraging social diversity and community life
The project has to respond to the needs of housing, and at the same time create living areas for the general public.
Taking into account the context and the rehabilitation projects, the implantation of a local library in partnership with the school, the community hall and the housing would be profitable to the redevelopment of the area (all the cultural buildings being located in the city-centre) and would encourage the creation of a community where social mix and diversity would be the key words.
To redesign the urban appearance is the ambition of this dynamic project. At the same time, the plan includes the creation of developed green areas alongside the Huveaune river and especially to link all the elements of the architectural program. How to distinguish the different aspects of the project, how to manage the transition between public and private areas and how to encourage social mix? These are the founding questions of the project.
