The project is located in an urban controlled BIA «Landy-Pleyel.»
It enjoys an exceptional location with unobstructed views: west side of the park, east side of the tracks, south on Academy Fratellini.
Our project is part of a current vision of contemporary city, with two strong aspirations: the implementation of a modern environment and the quality of life of a functional taking into account the requirements of sustainable development.
The building has a function «archives-premises» it is the heart and memory of the network media libraries Plaine Commune. We designed it like physical memory: a «hard drive», its architecture is taught as contemporary and ambitious. It’s goal is to be an icon, a signal in the city.
The starting point of our discussion focuses on the importance of the functionality of the program to interact with the architecture of the BIA, as well as users and visitors.
Echoing the atypical and fun atmosphere offered by the occupants of the Academy Fratellini (respect for environment, wooden building, the desire to preserve and create an ecosystem ....), we designed an intervention respectful and simple.
This induces the expression of contemporary architecture, dynamic and unifying for the neighborhood. The building is massive in order inertia and saving the project while having a significant environmental writing (wooden facades).
The project, by its height of three levels, is visible from all the surrounding buildings. It must be visually appealing and should add value to the neighborhood. A neat graphic work will be done on signage within the building, its facade and its access. The orange color is available in plain common reference.
