The initial project faced serious challenges in terms of cost and construction deadlines. The collective Plan01 (Jean Bocabeille Architecte, Atelier du Pont, Ignacio Prego Architectures, Koz, and Philéas) , which consists of 5 architecture firms, decided to respond in chorus to the question, “How do you bring architectural quality and diversity to a large-scale building within a tight deadline and at a construction cost of 1,450€ /m2 (of habitable surface), parking included?” Answers : - collective terraces instead of individual balconies, - underground parking that was nevertheless open-air and surrounded by greenery, - a building width that corresponded to the parking area’s structural frame (15 meters), - a sculpting of volumes that resulted in different heights; this limited the number of elevators and guaranteed that all the housing units would run across the whole floor or at least face more than one direction, - interior insulation using a coefficient of an optimal building shape and a thermic concrete manufactured on site.
