Les Ulis Bosquet Residential Complex
Largely built on concrete, the Bosquet quarter was originally a continuous hard surface, impersonal, lacking status, and very windy. The project consisted of creating central communal spaces, marked by alternating sequences of plants and gardens.
To introduce strongly planted areas would present large technical difficulties because of the limitations on the depth of the earth and the absence of watering. By putting in place wooden structures for the plants we could recreate a scale relationship between the buildings and the public space, organise more intimate places and reduce the effects of the wind, thus improving the microclimatic conditions of the hard surface.
