48 LOGEMENTS A VITRY SUR SEINE

Gaetan Le Penhuel & Associés, Architectes as Architects

This operation of rental housing is part of the overall urban renewal of the concerted area Concorde Stalingradin Vitry sur Seine, in the near suburbs of Paris.Between the RN 305 and hillsides, the lot Champs Fleuris acts as a link between urban dimensions.The 48 units are divided into two distinct entities: 24 units in an R+7 apartment building, which provides a frontbuilt on the boulevard Stalingrad, in the north east of the site, the other 24 homes develop into heart shapes infragmented plots from ground floor to R+3.Access from the central boulevard, under the raised collective building serves the entire operation, andcontinues as an pedestrian alley; the lot's heart, raised 90cm higher, can be seen from the boulevard, through acolored glass filter.


We installed a clear strategy on the plant site due to the presence of basement parking all over the entiresurface of the land: private gardens and planters with trees punctuate the alley, the backbone of the projectand act as a filter plant.The R+7 building has a current floor composed of 5 units, 4 of which have a double orientation. On the roof,penthouses in T5 duplex, are back from the alignment, and thus benefit from terraces of the city.South facade is characterized by the longitudinal collective balconies animated by mobile panels to play on the privacy of homes and solar gains.


The heart’s property has a denser scale, where everyone has large outdoor areas: the types alternate betweenhomes with private access directly from the alley, and semi‐public housing providing housing atypical duplexand triplex, with living rooms above the bedrooms offering large terraces.Facades, isolated from the outside, are treated with two quality sidings that meet: a smooth one in aluzinc, theother bent and darkcoat lacquered. A frameset and sliding metal panels can hide the rationality of currentfloors on the boulevard.On the ground floor, the rough concrete coated with anti‐graffiti glaze ensures durability of structures on thestreet, in the heart of the property, the stamped concrete mixed with the green device reveals a genuinemateriality contrasting with the metal cladding.
