Quartier Luciline, Rouen
Housing - 2015
At the head of a new sustainable neighbourhood
Our project is located on a corner plot and occupies a strategic position in terms of the visibility of the new Luciline neighbourhood in Rouen.
The site’s development strategy is part of Rouen City Hall’s policy to promote sustainable development and urban ecology.
One of the objectives of the project was to develop an original site within the framework of an urban ensemble, thereby providing the future neighbourhood with added value.
However, it is not simply an “architectural gesture” but, instead, a desire to focus on use values in an approach in which people are placed at the centre of the problematics of inhabited space.
The site provides views of an extraordinary landscape.
To the South, the River Seine; to the North and West, a clear view of the hills, which are largely free of developments.
Also to the West, there is a view of the city.
Our project is thus aimed at foregrounding exchanges between this geography and the project, a dialogue between the landscape and the built, inhabited environment.
