Tam-Tam Housing in Bordeaux
Contemporary Housing in France – design by B/NT architects
24 May 2017
Design: B/NT architects
Location: Rue Lucie Aubrac, Bordeaux, 33-France
The concept behind the project for the ‘Tam Tam’ site is to bring to the fore the site’s former industrial heritage as a port, an integral part of the history of Bordeaux, in order to maintain its poetic spirit within an overall objective of sustainable development.
The use of height to emphasise the proximity of the bay and the water gives the apartments remarkable panoramic views. The architectural language exploits and reinterprets the dynamic historic codes of the site. The urban form takes its place whilst paying heed to the surroundings and position, whilst leaving the heart of the site open and green.
The circulation of air and light, subdivisions, orientations and the subtle relationship between public and private space are the main principles that have guided the building of these new homes. Separated into two areas by a footpath, the site’s position culminates in the new road: a ‘tower’ that stands out at the fifth floor, whilst the interior of the site is built on a more human scale of small houses, with ground floors that house bicycles and vehicles and the shared garden, which is visible from the footpath.
The garden echoes the planted terraces that appear on each level as well as the numerous balconies. The main material is metal: solid and perforated, with sloping roofs and treated facades that run the length of the buildings, gratings, railings, balconies, staircases and open corridors visible from the exterior together creating a lively and animated appearance. A variety of materials and colours positioned randomly (blinds) make for an unusual and contemporary construction.
