Dwellings in Toulouse: The Garden

In Toulouse, near the airport and the river Garonne.

A housing development that seeks to optimize the living conditions of each of its cells. The whole is broken down to prioritize the meeting with the domestic rather than insisting on the abstraction of the idea.

A complex of four independent but conceptually connected volumes arranged around a semi-private garden.

The garden is an imagined recreation of the meandering landscape of the nearby river Garonne. Gravels, poplars and shrubs form lines inspired in materials and layout by the river.

Once fully grown, the trees will allow partial views, giving the whole greater unity than the bare saplings currently suggest.
