Housing estate, Saint-Malo

Not a neigh­bo­rhood, but a cen­ter-sta­tion: that’s how this fan-like construc­tion wants to rede­fine space. Situated close to Saint-Malo train sta­tion, a sports hall, the cour­thouse and a hotel, these accom­mo­da­tions are also places of relaxa­tion and well-being: real living places.

Program 100 housing units, shops
Site Saint-Malo
Floor Area 10 000 m²
Cost of construction 18 458 000 €
Timetable 2017 (unbuilt)
Project Owner Groupe ARC

Designed to live without being seen and to see the sea with dis­cre­tion, this buil­ding deve­lops a fan-sha­ped plan tur­ned towards the south and then opens up to the views of sea whe­re­ver it becomes pos­sible. This twist matches the step­ped layout on the south side. Local essences such as hea­ther or broom fre­shen the cen­tral gar­den. The façades of this hou­sing com­plex are fil­te­red by a sys­tem of alu­mi­num slats that the inha­bi­tants can orient them­selves, contri­bu­ting to the expres­sion of the buil­ding.
