B5 Boulogne 프로젝트는 파리근교 Seguin Rives de Seine라고 불리는 도시개발지구의 일부이다. 이 지역은 예전엔 기념비적인 프랑스 국영 자동차인 르노 공장의 고향과 같은 곳이었다. 공장의 비편재화 결과로 74 핵타르에 달하는 지표면은 이미 구조물이 철거된 상태이다. “Macrolot B5”라는 이름으로 새롭게 재 탄생될 이곳은 7개의 좀 더 작은 블럭으로 쪼재짐으로써 커다란 도시 정원 사이에 조성될 예정이다. 7명의 건축가가 7개의 다른 건물을 디자인하기 이해 선정되었으며, “Macrolot B5”를 책임질 도시 코디네이터에 의해 조직화될 예정이다.
The project B5 Boulogne is part of the urban development zone called Seguin Rives de Seine near Paris. This area was formerly home to the monumental Renault factories. As a result of the delocalization of these factories, a surface of 74 hectares has been liberated. This new area named “Macrolot B5” has been divided into seven smaller blocks distributed around a large urban garden. Seven architects were selected to design seven different buildings, organized by an urban coordinator in charge of the Macrolot B5.

White concrete, implemented in several ways, is the material connection between the buildings in the project. They are also connected through a common garden, located in the centre of the Macrolot B5. Not only is this generous garden visible from the surrounding streets through vaults in the buildings, but it also forms a generous ecological biotope providing calm and green views to the inhabitants. Additionally, most of the rain water is immediately treated on site to prevent over pouring the urban drain system. As a result of this, the Macrolot B5 works as an ecological hamlet, inviting people to meet, talk and reinforce a more environmental behaviour.
Our building is located in the centre of the site, which was the main constraint, just as a fountain in the middle of a cloister. How could the building’s position transcend this constraint ? The pillar of our design proceeds from this principle, this central position, providing both generous indoor spaces, and outdoor spaces by gently protecting the views brought us to this design: the Boulogne Arches.
