‘Armagnac’ by Habiter Autrement + Jean Nouvel

‘Armagnac’ by Habiter Autrement + Ateliers Jean Nouvel /// Bordeaux, France, 2012

This former industrial site is just two minutes from the central railway station. In the urban zoning plan, the building was situated in the centre of the plot, so the first important move was to shift the building to the west side of the site. The resulting large clearing to the east will have seasonal plants and flowers; vertical vegetation will create a visual filter between the west facade and the neighbouring housing. The spacious apartments consist of double-oriented lofts situated between these two landscapes.
