in historic french brittany, a row of homes was created by imagining the built the space a set of habitable grooves. ‘project k’ by french firm berranger and vincent seeks to act as a transitional space between residential neighborhood and rural landscape, using a series of highly rational duplexes. the collective housing is linked primarily by green landings and shared gardens. generously glazed living areas are oriented to optimize daylight along an east-west axis. despite the exterior streamlined, multiplied volumes, interiors have flexible plans so as to maximize adaptability. the spatial organization of the dwelling is centered on a main gathering space whose openness counters the precise-edge of the tectonic skin that encloses it.
