Maison pour Tous Neighborhood Middle / LINK – Chazalon Glairoux Lafond – architectes associés + Dld architectes
Textual content description supplied by means of the architects. We need to way every challenge with the worry of creating a particular reaction to a given scenario. That of the village of Saint-Jean de Moirans provides us a spot with a marked and distinctive identification. The structure of the village is outstanding. We practice the lines of rurality connected to the historical past of the village. Rammed earth structures lined by means of huge roofs with forged picket frames draw in our consideration. We realize a ordinary instrument within the articulation between wall-fence and area which create the urbanity of the village, defining its personality.
Occasionally in stone, every so often in rammed earth or lined however all the time very mineral, the structures are very heterogeneous and from other eras. Sloping roofs (2 or 4 aspects) are omnipresent and with huge overhangs, they attest to a powerful territorial identification connected to the local weather and to the native positive tradition. The panorama additionally has a powerful presence at the web site and characterizes an open house regardless of the presence of the manufacturing facility wall.
The terrain opens as much as far away perspectives of the Chartreuse and Vercors mountains once you climb somewhat. As well as, the personal enclosed gardens and the ever present crops make up an area panorama this is quieter, and safe, and successfully manages the perspectives of the group at the western and northerly limits.
In the end, the web site is positioned at the border between the dense historical the city middle and a extra diffuse sector of particular person and collective dwellings. The challenge should articulate those two city entities and arrange continuities in a position to making an glaring inscription of the challenge in its context.
Due to this fact, our mirrored image and the challenge take form round a couple of crucial questions: The way to articulate in the course of the architectural challenge an city collection in a position to creating a seam between the middle and its very shut outer edge? In the similar approach, how do construct a public house that enhances the urbanity, the squares, and the streets of the city middle? The way to seek advice from the heritage, to the unique identification of Saint Jean de Moirans whilst providing a modern, renewed, dynamic symbol, with out pastiche however with simplicity? What expression and what acquainted symbol to provide to this proximity apparatus? The challenge, due to this fact, feeds at the present stock.
In line with an «L» formed format, it right away constructed the sq. hooked up to the road, and a preserved youngsters’s lawn set again from the road. Two gabled facades, aligned with the streets, display a powerful and mineral presence. Between the 2 unfolds an open and clear picket construction giving the influence of emerging to be able to give a boost to the theory of continuity between the village and the areas of the development. Those elementary formal and positive traits, right here lined by means of a zinc roof, seek advice from the vernacular structure of Isère.
A distinction in floor stage makes it imaginable to unravel the articulation between the degrees of the sq. and the lawn whilst respecting the herbal slope of the land. Puts for conferences and casual exchanges that contain this sort of development, the circulations are such a lot of transitional areas that we have got taken specific care of. Whilst the ambience of the areas at the floor ground is connected to the bottom, to the continuity of the sq. and the lawn, to the hyperlink that the challenge maintains with the general public areas of the city middle; the upstairs areas make complete use of the volumes launched underneath the uncovered picket body and challenge into the far away panorama.
This proposal, benevolent in regard to the context, is meant to be the actual mirrored image of its program: this is to mention a area for all, beneficiant, welcoming, and welcoming for the population of the municipality. Past its capability, the challenge needs to provide the picture of an structure «with out pretension”, easy in its shape and belonging to its territory. The acquainted expression and home personality of this proximity apparatus is a solution for simple adhesion and appropriation by means of customers. Above all, they will have to really feel at house. The development will have to be open and alluring.
