HAMONIC + MASSON designed the ’36 apartments and medical centre’ in France.
Description from the architects:
The project finds itself both physically and politically at the heart of a major redevelopment for the Courtillières quarter. Giving back to a troubled neighbourhood several public facilities (medical centre, dentist, pharmacy) and rehousing a neighbouring dilapidated 1960s housing project, the building represented a commitment to urban rebirth.
Defined by the duality of its programme, the building provides an important dialogue between public and private, where the housing is enriched by the presence of the medical centre, and vice versa. Their coexistence is put into evidence by the game of peek-a-boo created by the courtyard at the heart of the building, giving chance views into the inhabitants’ daily life and social interactions.
