Badia Berger Architectes : Villa Inattendue

The white terraces do not overhang the Greek coast! The proof in Clichy-la-Garenne (92) where the Unexpected Villa houses tertiary spaces, housing and artists' studios. An unusual program that echoes the diversity of activities - warehouses, garages, small industries etc - specific to the communes of the near suburbs. And the originality does not stop there ....

Unlike housing bars and the hearts of large and planted islets, Badia Berger's project is inspired by Parisian villas that bring together terraced houses into a single complex. Organized on both sides of a central aisle, the different volumes are offset in staggered rows, punctuating the project yet characterized by white coated facades and a sobriety of materials.


The complex includes an office building and two housing complexes facing each other. One is a small collective rental social band of four levels whose ground floor is occupied by artists studios oriented Northeast. The other is a free-living collective consisting of three 5 floors arranged in terraces benefiting from stays and terraces facing south.

Thanks to the homogeneity of the immaculate facades, the Unexpected Villa - although containing a multitude of programs - remains a coherent and unified operation.

The project is selected for the 2019 ADC Awards in the Mixed category
