PPA, scalene architectes et AFA : Résidence Olympe de Gouges

At the same time, the PPA, scalene architects and AFA agencies have been thinking about how to offer maximum privacy to the users of a 615 CROUS student residence. They thus sign in Toulouse (31) a project easily appropriated by its inhabitants and inspired by the model of the cloister.

"Dilute the hive effect that could cause repetition and stacking of 615 dwellings". This is how the PPA agencies, scalene architects and AFA define their main objective for the realization of this student residence located in Toulouse.

Composed of two volumes in L joined together forming a rectangle and providing a central garden, the project was born from the firm will of the architects to give the students the intimacy they deserve despite the large capacity of reception . Also, the architects made the choice to take inspiration from the shape of the cloister around which they have built corridors - carried by concrete poles and dressed with a fence - which also serve as landings. In addition, the windows are protected by removable white panels, constituting a kind "Changing epidermis"depending on whether they are open or closed. A way to bring dynamism to a typology too often dull.

Inside too, everything is designed to offer maximum comfort, thanks to the work of the designers of the agency A + B. They have indeed proposed minimalist furniture in wood and metal, both sober and easily appropriable. Composed of a table, cupboards, a convertible bed in bench and an extended work plan in office, this furniture gives pride of place to the modular. And here is a beautiful, radiant city!
