Cité Louis Bertrand – Ivry-sur-Seine (FR)
Integration of a housing estate in its surroundings
The site of the housing estate, Cité Louis Bertrand, is situated in a network of green corridors between the Porte d’Ivry and the Fort d’Ivry. The rehabilitation of the housing estate is the opportunity to reinforce and integrate itself in the local urban fabric and to redefine its external spaces that had been neglected through a careless design.
The parking lots have been grouped together and the circulation have been reduced to the minimum. The exterior areas have been allotted to different zones and functions and a new square at the entrance creates the new connection with its surrounding neighbourhood.
