Magnificent views over Bordeaux.
At the corner of rue Boileau and avenue Lucien Faure, the residential building enjoys an exceptional location.
The apparently complex contours of the building are defined by the overhanging balconies on the heart of the block, which bend over to create generous terraces offering grandiose views over the landscape of the Bordeaux conurbation.
The project’s materials are white, glazed terracotta and champagne-anodized aluminum, with the aim of unifying the overall massing. The attic facade folds back to form a continuous plane with the roofs. This folding and the use of a single material give the building a recognizable, luminous silhouette.
The modenature of the openings is progressive, accentuating the slenderness of the volume. Sliding shutters in champagne-anodized aluminum combine several frames, accentuating the generosity of the openings. Chassis shutters, frames and balustrades contrast the soft hues of metal with the glossy, uniform white of brick.
