La Victorine - Deluxe Residential Building
   back to selected projects > housing / residential
Project description
On a tiny plot (273m²), between two parallel roads with 9m difference in level, we had to provide 4 houses and a loft for the members of one family. The mandatory height limit of the street façade and the narrowness of the plot resulted in the unconventional duplex/triplex organization of the residences. Towards the West, zinc sheet roofing shall slide down till the first level, providing the innovative and dynamic aspect of the project. To the East, honed stone cladding harmonizes the street elevation with its context. Apparent random openings on the façade reflect the building’s internal organisation.
