152 HOUSING UNITS, VILLEURBANNE

Lot C in Villeurbanne’s La Soie district is destined to become a symbol, a gateway to the city of Lyon.
The project has an airy layout, with three vertical volumes (9 to 19 storeys) – the tallest of which redefines the scale of the surroundings. All three buildings are linked together at different levels with bridges and balconies, making a functional whole. The façades facing North, toward the canal, are cladded in smooth and simple materials, achieving a peaceful urban look. Inside the lot, to the South, balconies and terraces are sculpted into the volumes, providing each apartment with intimacy and planted environments. The rooftop terraces on the two lower buildings were designed like a town square (barbecue grill, solarium, vegetable garden) to encourage residents to socialise.
