COLLECTIVE ECO-HOUSING :: “La Canopée” by Patrick Arotcharen Architect (BAYONNE, FR.)

Eco-Housing La Canopée : Patrick Arotcharen2

 

“In order to design and build architecture that not only responds to its context but also to mans need for function, the careful study of the topography and surrounding vegetation lent itself to the exact placement and setting out of the project where the timber cabins intertwine themselves with the surrounding woods. A study of the site, the views and the sunpath, the underlying desire to avoid any potential overlooking and the idea to hide the residential parking requirements beneath the apartments meant that a sort of visual ‘ordered chaos’ leant itself to the physical disposition, density and juxtaposition of the buildings.”
