The Docks Dombasles / Hamonic + Masson architects

first_imgArchDaily Projects Photographs:  Jean-Christophe Masson, Herve AbbadieText description provided by the architects. Hamonic et Masson’s mixed-use office and housing building is part of an initiative to preserve and reuse the industrial heritage of the southern quarters of Le Havre, France. Through its scale, rhythm, shape and materials, the project forms an integral part of a re-envisioned harbour landscape, creating the transition between a domestic scale and the greater harbour landscape.Save this picture!© Herve AbbadieRecommended ProductsDoorsJansenDoors – Janisol DoorHanging LampsAxolightWall Lights – FloatStoolsAndreu WorldTrenza – Outdoor BarstoolA 19th century brick warehouse, or avéole, was conserved and incorporated into the project to house the office space required in the programme. The warehouse’s silhouette and scale subsequently inspired the repetitive module that was used for the housing portion of the project. The use of modules allowed for a prefabricated construction system, both for the concrete structure and the metal façade.

Outdoor passageways and staircases provide access to the apartments while also providing a dynamic northern façade. Save this picture!© Herve AbbadieTo each apartment is given the same benefits – outdoor private space, direct southern light, sun shading systems and natural ventilation – despite the fact that the programme includes both social housing and high quality apartments for sale. The differences occur only within: owners buying off the plan were able to modify and adapt their apartments during construction, and the majority of private apartments have double height living rooms with mezzanines. Save this picture!PlanThe entire building is lifted a half-floor above the quay to clearly define the limit between public and private space and to liberate the ground floor for a naturally ventilated parking and garden. This half-floor is enclosed by a pattern of perforated metal sheeting and green glass panels, graphically referring to the vegetation found in the neighbouring park and urban space, designed by Obras architects.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Wright / Andre KikoskiArticlesAD Round Up: Patio Houses Part IIArticlesProject locationAddress:Le Havre, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.
