26 Dwellings BENESSE LES DAX (France)

Agvar Architects together with Baobab Architectural Studio from Bordeaux have produced a Concept Design for the construction of 26 Dwellings in Benesse Les Dax, Les Landes.

In the middle of the French countryside a new settlement is strategically proposed connecting an old church, a Community Centre and an old barn where the future Town Hall will be placed. The architecture seats carefully in the terrain, reading from vernacular experience, with variable roofs heights.

The new Masterplan includes 15 new detached homes, and 3 small collective homes which house a total of 11 dwellings.
