‘Little Wood’

Aktis won the competition for 53 housing units in ZAC Beauvert, Grenoble. In “Little Wood“ project we have combined our commitment to urban and architectural quality to a design approach open and innovative. This is not about designing town houses, as access is not individualized, but it is about to find within the apartments the “livability of a home.”

The project follows a logical division that assembles complex constructions in various combinations. We have combined density and intimacy, working on limits, playing on various sensory perceptions and offering a reinterpretation of the traditional house.

The houses of 3 to 7 apartments are arranged in order to preserve to the maximum the existing trees but also so that each unit benefits from the best orientation, and that the views are not disrupted by the vis-à-vis.

The idea of the “inhabited park” is reinforced by the houses withdrawn from the street alignment and as well by the terrain that is completely free from any traffic. Parking is underground, there where are no existing trees.
