High density residential

National competition for the rehabilitation of a former industrial site of 9 ha containing 4 basins, next to a canal. The high-density project had to create a dynamic and sustainable living environment. The main challenge was to maximize density while keeping all the units comfortable. A balance between compacted and extended floor plan increase the area for windows while keeping the interior circulation to a minimum. The difficulties remain to build next to and onto a body of water in a northern climate. The artificial structure of the body of water is revealed from the main road, as we can see the ramp leading to the underground parking lot.
