Block H is at the junction between the old neighbourhood of Sainte Blandine-Perrache and that of Confluence. We designed this open block as a series of volumes sculpted by light, which are organised in successive setbacks to lighten the built mass, breaking it down into cascading tiers according to aspects to allow light to reach the middle of the blocks. The metal facing material is vibrant and reflective to accentuate the breakdown of the volumes. The anodised aluminium will be perforated according to a grid that is random but controlled to create moiré pattern effects and reflections on the walls which change with the daylight.
