The Carré de Soie project forms a complex of housing and office blocks in a rapidly developing district between Lyon and Villeurbanne, with a mixed programme of offices, housing and student residence. We aimed to create a complex of office blocks on Esplanade de l’Union and to set back housing in the quiet rear part of the plot. There are many gaps cut in our complex of blocks, forming an archipelago of sculpted islets of different scales and modularity effects of varying heights to allow light from the south into the heart of the complex. The external spaces are entirely pedestrianized, with areas differentiated by hardscaping and softscaping and large internal private courtyards provided for the housing.
