Alain Gignoux Architecte : Logements sociaux locatifs et local d’activités

It is on a suburban ground that Alain Gignoux decides to implement his project. On the program, rental social housing and business premises. Located in Clichy-la-Garenne and inserted between the Asnières road and the railway beam Saint Lazare, housing that gives color to this changing neighborhood.

The project exploits perfectly the regulatory envelope of the local urban plan and shows a volumetric expertly optimized. The building, clad in white brick, offers a facade that is both refined and sober. Particular care was taken to the houses whose environment required a different installation depending on the side of the facade. A simple building with a motto: comfort for the inhabitants.


North side, the volumetry is rigorously exploited for the lodging, one will find a block of cellars in the middle of the building as well as three duplexes in 9 and 10ème stages. On the street side, seven balconies offer mutual protection during inclement weather and privacy for residents. The facade directly exposed to the station, and therefore trains, is made up of loggias shooting to effectively mitigate the various noise that a station can produce.

A resolutely sober project that fits perfectly in a neighborhood where the heart balances memory and new architecture.

The project is selected for the ADC Awards 2019 in the category Housing / Peri-urban
