Equipements publics de la Gavotte

Les Pennes-Mirabeau / Bouches du Rhône

The choice of such a grouping of equipment goes beyond the usual exercise of locating a building on a parcel of land or along a street.
Here the plurality of programmes adds to the complexity of the site to form a high-density ensemble where architecture and landscape are intimately linked.
It is nothing more or less than the creation of a centre of public amenities by completely reconstructing the sequence of a valley of the Gavotte district, which is steeped and already largely urbanized.
All of the new activities are spread out along the hillsides, taking advantage of the slope. The project organizes the platforms and the different levels to allow a transversal use of the equipment.
