Located in Firminy, known as one of Le Cor­busier’s «Cité radieuse» location, our building benefits from its central situation. Facing the street in the north, the 4-storey unit responds to the necessity for urban integration.












In the south, in front of the railroad, the plot gives an unobstructed view which provides sunlight to all appartments. Generous log­gias bring intimicy as much as an individual outdoor place.
A traditional masonry building system provi­des great inertia in summer as well as improved acoustic performance. The concrete facade is covered with exterior insulation. To reduce noise on the railroad side, the loggias are closed by double-glazing windows which allow adequate transmission loss.
During summer the loggias became terraces because of the large windows sliding behind
metal siding.
To create a proper urban integration and bring a new face to social housing, our buil­ding stands for its simple design in accor­dance with the city scale. The grey siding writes a dynamic and contemporary image in the street.
