ECDM: The design of our project is developed around three strong intentions structured by the legacy of this remarkable site. There is above all the question of the garden, this protected land, out of time, that we perceive and that we can give to see.


This is not only to respect an urban rule by restoring a sum of open ground but to preserve as much of an atypical plant heritage, release the ground as much as possible to leverage the garden and finally to structure it to generate depths of field and gradations in its perception.


Around this garden is a heritage, a body juxtaposition of disparate buildings with the chapel in the center. Again, the question is more and architectural landscape. All built elements, entangled in one another, generates a composition that must not deconstruct. Also we maintain the highest levels of its origin site, respecting the site plan with all the main buildings juxtaposed U. Thus, all built eras and architectural styles are preserved as witnesses of a past from which complex, on which we wish superimpose contemporary writing.


This organization timeless generated for the neighborhood balance, stability of the landscape with a structuring empty, punctuation street, a note of silence. Aware of the changing environment will have on the realization of a new project, we asked about how to give to neighbors new qualities.


There is first the fall of the wall replaced by a limit structural glass, completely transparent which fully opens the garden throughout the linear street of Saxony. The new building is compact, on stilts, framing the vision of a second field. A maximum of trees is retained, the courtyards are now open on a clear view, and the blind gables and vegetated walls are covered with climbing plants.
