The architectural practice Agence Bernard Buhler was employed in 2012 to design a project for 66 flats in a collective house which were divided into two buildings. The first building is located on the borderline with the Avenue Emile Counord in Bordeaux, France and the second building is at the center of the site.
The first building uses a joyful façade with glazed green screens and white aluminum boxes to attract the attention from the street and thus acting mostly as pure aesthetic elements. The second building on the other hand gives functionality to the motif by adding balconies with the same theme. The level of this building isn’t as high as the first one due to its location.
The project was split into two locations in order to allow the future owners to have access to the Avenue Emile Counord if they are usually in a rush or to have a home in an area which is landscaped in the heart of the site.
