Asnières Residential Park

Espace Libre: Located in the heart of Asnières sur Seine, a plot of 6000 m² on two levels becomes a meeting place for the population . As an urban staple it helps build a missing link between the different neighborhoods, college and high school, which revolves around this space. To link the two sides of the square, a fold has achieved in the axis of the two entrances thereby making more  natural path between them. Playgrounds suround the plot center of the square, of whom the top level, is reserved for children under 6 years, while the lower level is open to teens. A second square plot serves to college while acting as a gateway to the development. Moreover, a species-specific mono, lavender, is planted on the edge of the high level to emphasize the link between the two entrances.
