Elizabeth Naud et Luc Poux architectes : 37 logements en accession sociale

Who said that social housing could not be part of a suburban architecture? Certainly not the duo Elizabeth Naud and Luc Poux who is developing a project rue Danton in Gennevilliers (92) modeled on the villas of Paris and reinterpreting the traditional two-sided roof.

Inserted in a district testifying to a strong architectural heterogeneity intermixing suburban fabric and large sets of the Seventies, the set of 3 046 square meters was not constrained by an affirmed vernacular architecture. The proponents' bias was therefore to propose a strip structure - echoing the various adjoining dwellings - and a volumetry close to the individual house, so as to integrate the program in a coherent way in the neighborhood. Alternating "joint ownership" and separation, the strips placed between the various buildings create bridges from the street to the garden while punctuating the whole.


The project is made up of several foundations, governing the distribution of the different typologies that are part of the project. The first leaves room for the natural terrain to villas and gardens. The second, from the high level, hosts private villas and vegetated terraces.

What to add a little green to the suburbs of Paris!

The project is selected for the ADC Awards 2019 in the category Housing / Urban Center
