BONNEUIL SITE COTTON-building

June 21, 2013

Margot-Duclot architectes associés concluded in 2013 a 5 years project in the city of Bonneuil-sur-Marne.
The TCSP, a major public transport project connecting the Pompadour place with the Sucy station, initiated a strong renewal in the Bonneuil City entrance.The land retrieved from the railways made possible the conversion of the IUFM crossroad into a friendly urban scale.

Master plan followed the progressive liberation of the land produced by the projected public transport.

small and independent buildings to create a residential proximity, organized around a generously planted core. The choosen orientations of the masterplan invite the sun in the heart of the project all year long.

Between the buildings, through planted alleys, can be seen individual houses, large balconies, shared gardens and kid’s playground. Here we find a type of intermediate housing, half building / half house, with all its qualities. The buildings take the most from natural light and apartments have double orientations at minima.

The planted heart of the project is perceived in all its variety from the street. The rainwaters are regrouped into wells created in the inner landscape.

The public space development together with the project celebrates the renewal of a quality urban landscape leading to redefine the scale of the city.
