2A DESIGN : Maison du Projet

Scheduled to inform residents of the region of Rennes (35) on current developments in the ZAC Blosne, the House Project is characterized by a strong architectural choice of its prime contractors, the local agency 2A DESIGN. Indeed, far from the usual morose prefabricated, the designers install the documentation center in ... empty containers. Result? A building as attractive as the projects it presents.

Thought to be moved, the structure of 120 square meters is composed of three maritime containers and nine half containers, all recessed and playing with the different heights they offer. The visitor accesses the glazed reception, located in the center, via a slope PMR. This space also leads to a gallery presenting the various urban planning projects as well as to a meeting room, located to the east. Overlooked by a container to which the floor has been removed, the space benefits from a double-height volume with exposed beams.


Overlays in the west were also made by the architects. No more here to remove the soil but the facades, which are replaced by cables forming a triangle on the first level, when they remain free on the top floor, revealing the interior all dressed turquoise blue. A monochromatic coating that so gnawing the whole hitherto characterized by the near-omnipresence of gray.
Completing the whole, a UPN connects the different stages of construction and is cleverly transformed into support for the signage and the visual identity of the place.

In contrast to the industrial character of the basic materials, the interior is very warm, thanks to the presence of wood and clear wall cladding in plasterboard. The many openings, with discreet curtains, bathe the different areas in a natural light, diffuse and pleasant.

A realization that announces the changes of Ille-et-Vilaine with character!
