RATP OPERATION MONTROUGE, STUDENT HOUSING | MONTROUGE, GRAND PARIS, FRANCE
RATP called for a competition for the construction of a superstructure above an old bus depot, that was to house 350 student accommodation units. Because the entrance area on the street level was only of 20 m², the architects decided to create a public space for the building's residents on top of the depot, on the first floor, where there would be a bike parking area, accommodation units for persons with disabilities, and laundry rooms.
Location: Montrouge, Grand Paris, France
Date: Competition: 2007
