The aim is to propose a social, urban, and architectural transition. This is to answer to the network of various built archetypes within the district on many levels. It offers to articulate the structure in two volumes.
这种清晰的表达方式能够将视角引向相邻的城市环境和氛围。花园空间呼应了艺术之家（Maison des Art）的设计，为这块位于巴黎城郊的场地增添了一份美学价值。附近的环城公路使其与交通系统形成密切的联系。
This articulation allows to direct the perspectives and orientations that relate to different urban environments and atmospheres. The garden made in the liking of the Maison des Art’s counterpart, will provide an added value this piece of the outskirts of Paris. It will be highly exposed to vehicle traffic, particularly due to the beltway situated nearby.
On the other side, facing the “Cite Internationale Universitaire de Paris”, the building will interact with La Maison des Arts et Métiers, where it will send a real urban facade to the frontal side by fitting in a “faubourg” piece of architecture. Thus, the facade shows a variety of horizontal layers: A glass-based ground extended by piles under the lowest floor, three larchwood floors, and finally the top floor in drilled aluminum sheets.
The selected materials take part in the appearance of the building and answer to all functional, economical, and environmental requirements. The residence will accommodate apartments from 20 to 40 square meters, as well as common rooms for either work and leisure. Each housing will comprise and include an entrance with a kitchenette beside it, as well as a living room and a bathroom.
