This work stems directly from the strategic plan that we developed for the district of Caudéran. Here, the individual fabric is optimized by what we call “proximate living”, inspired by the collective architecture of Alfred Beadle in Phoenix.
Proximate living, small individual developments that create an urban fabric, is adapted to medium sized plots located in individual areas. It offers higher density than conventional individual habitat and an increased landscape.
Two rows of two-story houses (7 and 8 dwellings) are implemented perpendicular to the street following a grid of 5x5m. Each house benefits from a private outside space turned towards the outside of the plot and a big common garden densely planted (10m wide) in the middle of the plot. A front garden develops on the street. The common parking is grouped under the construction.
