Les Echelles du Baroque

272-apartment complex, including shops on ground floor. The buildings are set around three plazas, one circular, one elliptical and the other in the form of an amphitheatre. The geometry of the apartments is based on a combination of modules. The basic module is 65 sqm, equivalent to a three-bedroom apartment. All of the houses have dual orientation. The interior façade of the houses which delimit the elliptical plaza takes the form of a curtain wall, with a rhythmic sequence of glass columns which makes it possible to provide every apartment with a glazed bow windows. Some of the apartments are laid out over two levels, and have an interior balcony opposite the curtain wall.
