35 social housing units, Morsang-sur-Orge

Small town at the south of Paris, Morsang-sur-Orge has kept the urban structure of a village, with narrow streets, houses in alignment whose facades extend in the same line the enclosure walls, all seemingly carved from the same material. The site for this 35-unit construction operation, represents one of the largest free plots in the town center. On the rue Paillard side, a row of tall trees marks the alignment, while on the rue de la Ferme side a listed stone wall, punctuated by a shed that the heritage architect wishes to preserve protects the interior of the block.

The issue of urban integration of the project, necessarily set back 5 meters from the alignment on the street, also requires limiting the height visible from the street of buildings, and fragmenting the reading of the facade linear from the street.
