I DID Concept development (2006) Masterplan (2006) Schematic design (2006)

This masterplan for 15 houses is made of several functional parallel strips for circulation of pedestrians or cars, houses, public or private gardens. Four perpendicular alleys cross over the different atmospheres of the neighborhood. East facades have a collective aspect while west facades have an individual aspect with terraces, patios and gardens. Car parks are hidden under planted embankments located near entrances of houses. Bioclimatic concept includes photovoltaic panels for energy and roof gardens for a better insulation. Houses are semi-detached in order to limit thermic loss with a compact architecture.

This exceptional house sets up on a sloping site with generous and thick vegetation. The wood terraces and the roof gardens give the impression of a moving project, emerging from the soil. Project’s geometry offers viewpoints on the bay and improve the natural setting. Spaces and functions revolve around the swimming pool which follows the main terrace. Facades are made up of large sliding glass panels and of openwork wood shutters. In the main living space, the facade can disappear by sliding to open completely the interior space on the exterior terrace.

Located in the new Berge du Lac area in Bordeaux, this project includes four collective buildings and seven individual houses which form a block. The dark shades and unbalanced silhouettes of the three tallest buildings echo the tramway. On the other side, the individual cantilevered houses and a building covered in wood, are erected along the side of a linear park. Each of these architectural choices responds to the particular environment of these buildings.

This project is located in a urban renewal area in Nanterre, near Paris. A commercial center developed on one single level will be destroyed in order to construct a new project which includes: private and public car parks, a shopping center and several housing buildings. Buildings are conceived as a fragmentation of many volumes treated with differents materials : concrete, bricks, coating. The height of the buildings matches the domestic scale of the single family homes and more contrasted volumetry of other housing buildings located around the project.

This new housing unit is located in Clichy, in Paris area between the Seine river and a public park. In order to enable views on river for many inhabitants, the seven buildings are set up in staggered rows at either side of a new street. The block is crossed by a pedestrian alley connecting the park and the riverbank. The housing buildings are made of steel and glass from ground floor to sixth floor. The three top levels have wooden façades. The main façade on Seine river is made of double-height steel panels for sun protection and to offer inhabitants one more piece such as a conservatory.

I WAS Part of teamwork

This project is a part of a renewal plan of an post-industrial district in Clichy. The aim is to manage densification and creation of a peaceful urban environment, away from car transit. It includes development of housing, commercial spaces and public facilities around a new public square. First levels are designed in continuity of the traditional urban fabric with a simple treatment: no overhangs, facades with dark grey bricks. Higher, three buildings emerge: they are treated with clear materials and are sculpted with loggias and balconies, offering panoramic views on greater Paris landscape.

Based on the orthogonal expansion of existing surrounding streets, Massena will be a dense and mixed-use area served by a transportation hub. Here is the transition between an artificial and the natural ground. Buildings are categorized into 2 types : high-rise in staggered rows and base buildings which height is strictly the same to constitute a reference level for pedestrians. Main public square is a sloping space between the end of avenue de France and the entrance of the train station train station whose departures hall is located under the ring road viaduct.

I DID Concept development (2008)

This collection of models is a thought on high-rise architecture : scale, ground connexion, relation with the sky, mixity, vertical displacements. My concept consists in a degraded tower which voids are special spaces for the users, some kind of vertical streets connecting the levels with each other and with liven up with conviviality spaces: public facilities, shops, terraces or gardens. This mixed-use tower is vertically divided in four programs: public library, offices, housing and a hotel at the top.

Ouest-Lumière was looking for an uncommon idea for its headquarters in India. The response consists in an homothetic transformation of a design object. The leg will be the structure of the tower. The wood box will be the office building. The white plastic disc will be the housing level. The lampshade will be an “eco-box” including all the technical equipments that will enable the tower to be self-sufficient for energy. Project was dropped for lack of money.

Construction of tunnels for transit enable creation of a large public space made of many landscaped parallels strips connecting Paris and Boulogne. Shops set up in four buildings created as raising of several park’s strips. All roofs are accessible to public. Many paths and differents programs bring life this public space. A transportation hub enables connections between subway, bus, taxis, electric car and bicycle sharing services and parking.

The aim is to value an exceptional natural area located between two cities. One part of the area will be urbanized while the other part will become a large park. Project relies on existing topography (many embankments) and on existing paths. Between the future east/west tramline and a pedestrian ribbon along the park, the embankments define four urban areas. Their sides host public facilities as school or library. Each mixed-use block include several housing typologies: collective, shared, co-housing and individual. The project has two faces: from the street, city asserts, while from the park, city fades.

This workshop is the third session of an exploratory approach developed by french state concerning complex territories. On several sites, this approach consists in gathering together the state authorities, local stakeholders and a multi-disciplinary project team. Exchanges are based on site visits and work sessions based on models. The aim is to increase the awareness that authorities have of their territories in order to neutralize preconceived ideas and to suggest directions that might be taken to re-imagine the commercial planning.

An administrative center located in Lyon area becomes a mixed-use area including 400 dwellings. Urban design relies on the sloping geography. Economic activities are set up along the main route to protect from noise the central space: on a plateau, a public park with mountain views, surrounded by housing buildings and many shops. Below the plateau, smaller housing units are set up on several terraces near the small wooded valley. New streets and paths dedicated to pedestrians and cyclists are created to improve connections with city center.

I WAS Part of teamwork

In Lille, the south ring road is a scar in the city. The aim of this urban study is to imagine new links between downtown and suburb overpassing road and rail infrastructures. Urban and landscaped staples enable new links: bridge-building of the future Porte des Postes train station or footbridge to improve the attractivity of the botanical garden. Architectural projects on many wilderness areas will increase density and bring mixity.

LA défense tRAIN STATION’S NEW ENTRANCES  La Défense EPADESA

 CONTRACTOR EPADESA (public authority)


I WAS Project manager

Today, the train station of La Défense has only one way to go out: through a tunnel under platforms to reach the main underground hall for connections. Two scenarios enable direct links between the trains and the surface. The first one consists in the creation of a new entrance hall in an unused space upon the platforms, accessible through a patio from public space. The second one consists in the creation of two entrances through two lateral wells between public space and tunnel.

MOVE BACK THE MOTORWAY  Marseille (Boulevard Leclerc) SEURA Architects

 CONTRACTOR Euroméditerrannée (public authority) SURFACE 3 ha CALENDAR 2006-2013 COST € 15 millions


I WAS Part of teamwork

Yesterday, A7 motorway entrance in Marseille was marked by an impressive viaduct plunging in the city to the Porte d’Aix. Viaduct was destroyed in order to move back the motorway. Connection between motorway and the city has become a simple junction with a boulevard. Pedestrian continuities are established with the renovation of a boulevard and the construction of two footbridges and large stairs. Public spaces include urban furniture in weathering steel and enable the pedestrians to discover a new viewpoint on Notre-Dame de la Garde basilica.
